Too bad he didn't mention Green Bay

So much for a little Brotherly Love.

The U.S. House of Representatives, which has spent just a little too much time dealing with sports issues lately, passed a resolution today honoring the Giants for their Super Bowl XLII victory. The resolution passed by a vote of 412 to 1.

The one? Patrick Murphy, a Democrat from Bucks County, Pa., and a self-described “lifelong Eagles fan.”

“I couldn’t, in good conscience, vote for the New York Giants,” he said, according to the Bucks County Courier Times. “The only thing worse would have been a resolution honoring the Dallas Cowboys.”

Incidentally, a U.S. Senate resolution praising the Giants passed 100-0 back on Feb. 6.
