LSU Congressman wears Bama tie, houndstooth hat, and calls out “Roll Tide” on C-SPAN

Rep. Cassidy and Rep. Sewell celebrate Bama BCS victory

Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell (D-Alabama) and Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana) had a friendly bet on whether the Crimson Tide or LSU would win the BCS National Championship game. Now that Congress is back in session, it was Rep. Cassidy’s turn to pay up. It’s a good thing Dr. Cassidy is a physician; he looked like he needed one after that performance on the House floor.

“Roll Tide” at the 1:26 mark.

Rep. Sewell introduced House Resolution 518 congratulating the Tide for winning its 14th National Championship and acknowledging its winning tradition, conference championships and bowl appearances. She especially recognized Trent Richardson, the Heisman Trophy finalist and winner of the Nation's Most Outstanding Running Back (Doak Walker Award); Barrett Jones, the Outland Trophy winner for the Nation's best interior lineman in college football; and the six Bama players named AP All-Americans -- Mark Barron, Dont'a Hightower, Barrett Jones, Trent Richardson, Courtney Upshaw, and Dre Kirkpatrick.

A full transcript of her remarks is here. Video of Rep. Sewell’s remarks before the House is here.

Besides being a good sport, the LSU Congressman is anti-SOPA and PIPA. Geaux Cassidy!
