Congratulating the New England Patriots
(At the request of Mr. Daschle, the following statement was ordered to be printed in the Record.)
Mr. KERRY. Mr. President, backed by the heartiest fans in the world, the New England Patriots are once again the greatest football team in the Nation. I want to join so many others in commending the Patriots for their marvelous and miraculous season, in which the team overcame injuries and a slow start to end up with a fifteen-game winning streak and a second Super Bowl championship in three years. From the wise stewardship of Bob Kraft and Bill Belichick to the Tom Brady-led offense and the Ty Law-led defense, the Patriots are a team in the fullest sense of the word. Congratulations also to the Carolina Panthers, who mad Super Bowl XXXVIII one of the most memorable season-ending games in U.S. professional sports history.
