Ms. WASSERMAN SCHULTZ. I thank the gentlelady for yielding. We are really excited. This is the fourth annual congressional women's softball game. We are the defending champions. We beat the Bad News Babes last year. We have expanded our team. We have the gentlelady from Alabama who's a ringer this year, Mrs. Roby. You should come out and see her play; she's got some skills.

So even though the press corps has been talking some good trash, and they're even apparently practicing on the beach while at the G 20, we have jelled as a team, come together in a bipartisan, bicameral way. And between our superior fielding, hitting, and strategic approach to the game, we look forward to continuing as the champions of the Annual Congressional Women's Softball Game. It's 7 p.m. tomorrow night, Watkins Recreation Center. Come on out, encourage your staff. This year it is a $10 entry fee, but all for a good cause, to raise money for the Young Survival Coalition, which is an organization that raises awareness and supports young survivors of breast cancer.

And I would just conclude by thanking all Members and staff, as a breast cancer survivor myself, and a young one at that, it is so personally and deeply meaningful to me that the congressional family is always so supportive of the women Members. Thank you to my congressional sisters. You guys are awesome.
