Murphy won’t cheer Giants
Bucks County Courier Times: LINK

He was the sole U.S. representative not to OK a congratulatory resolution
Bucks County Congressman Patrick Murphy, D-8, has taken the rivalry between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants to Capitol Hill.

On Wednesday, the House passed a resolution congratulating the New York Giants on winning this year’s Super Bowl “and completing one of the most remarkable postseason runs in professional sports history.”

The resolution passed by a vote of 412 to 1.

Murphy, a diehard Eagles fan who worked at Veterans Stadium as a security guard when he was 16, was the only House member to vote against it.

“As a former 700-level security guard and lifelong Eagles fan, I couldn’t, in good conscience, vote for the New York Giants,” Murphy said Thursday. “The only thing worse would have been a resolution honoring the Dallas Cowboys.”

The Giants shocked the sports world when they defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII on Feb. 3. The upset spoiled the Patriots’ quest to become the NFL’s first undefeated Super Bowl winner since the Miami Dolphins won the Super Bowl in 1972.
