One cranky congressman voted “nay” on a resolution congratulating the New York Giants on their Super Bowl win. Surprisingly, it wasn’t a member from Massachusetts, but a politician from Pennsylvania:
The BUCKS COUNTY COURIER TIMES reports that local rep Patrick Murphy was the sole dissenting vote in the congressional resolution that passed 412-1 on Wednesday.
The resolution officially honored the Giants for beating New England in Super Bowl XLII and “completing one of the most remarkable postseason runs in professional sports history.”
But as a life-long fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, Murphy couldn’t bring himself to honor an NFC East rival:
“As a former 700-level security guard and lifelong Eagles fan, I couldn’t, in good conscience, vote for the New York Giants. The only thing worse would have been a resolution honoring the Dallas Cowboys.“
Nothing like a p.o.’ed Philly fan to ruin someone else’s celebration.
Well, at least he’s true to his team, unlike some political posers.
