Default may or may not happen, but congressional football game is still on!


Ugh. Unfortunately all this debt talk is taking up everyone's time in Washington nowadays, taking precious time away from addressing more important issues, like football.

Thankfully, a bunch of Republican staffers are on top of things, including Kara Webster, scheduler for Rep. John Runyan (R-N.J.), who reportedly sent out this message yesterday to fellow Hill staffers about an important football planning meeting today:

Subject: Congressional Football Game - MEMBERS MEETING TOMORROW after votes

Hi *MORE* Republican Schedulers!

We wanted to alert you that Reps. Shuler, Shuster and Runyan will hold an organizational meeting TOMORROW, Friday, July 29th after First Votes in Room H-122 about the upcoming Congressional Football Game.

*First Votes are expected to end between 1:00 and 1:30pm.

They are looking to recruit players, inform your bosses about a tentative practice schedule (which will kick-off when we come back in September), and let your bosses know the possible dates we are looking to hold the game (Oct. 12th or 13th).

Also – this will be a FLAG Football game; however, we may have everyone wear helmets in the off-chance there is a collision.

We hope your bosses will come to the meeting and will want to play in the game!!!

Thanks so much!

Kara Webster
