Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mrs. EMERSON. On behalf of Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and myself, we are very proud to announce that the Women's Bipartisan Congressional Softball Team beat the Washington Female Press Corps in our recent softball game by a score of 5-4. In the spirit of our U.S. Women's Soccer team which won today and are on their way to the final in the World Cup--we probably aren't quite in that category. But for us this was the World Cup, and we are very proud and we want to thank everybody for the great support that you gave to us.

I would be remiss if I didn't explain how we won. In the bottom of the seventh inning, because we only play seven innings, with the score tied 4-4, Laura Richardson and Linda Sánchez were both walked because the other team was afraid of them hitting, and then DEBBIE gets up and she hits a single. And were it not for the fact that Linda Sánchez ran around the bases, collided with the catcher, and slid in on her stomach at home, we would not have won. But we did. Thank you, Linda Sánchez.

I yield to the gentlewoman from Florida.
