Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Session May 1, 2014
Charles Schumer, D-NY
"They say they really want to pass immigration legislation in their heart, but they are only one Member and it is not up to them. They can even have their leadership blame other Republicans for not holding a vote. But Bill Parcells, who used to coach for both the New York Giants and New York Jets, was famous for saying, “You are what your record shows you are.”"
Celebrating Jack Murray’S 90Th Birthday November 12, 2013
Tom Reed, R-NY
"Mr. Murray’s life and career exemplify selfless and tireless commitment to his neighborhood, his community and his noble profession of public education. Jack is the son of the late major league baseball great ‘Red’ Murray, one of the notable stars on the roster of the New York Giants in the early years of the 20th Century. Mr. Murray followed in his father’s athletic footsteps through a decades-long career of promoting good health and fitness as a physical education teacher within the Elmira City School District. He was a laudable fixture in the public school system of his community for over thirty years, and his work touched the lives of thousands of young people in a supportive and positive fashion."
Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act Of 2013—Motion To Proceed April 10, 2013
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"Jack Pinto was 6 years old, and he was already a jock. He loved the New York Giants, and he had an idol whose name is Victor Cruz. He loved Victor Cruz. He followed everything Victor Cruz did. He was ecstatic when the Giants won the Super Bowl and Cruz played a big part. Victor was wonderful enough in the days following the tragedy to honor Jack’s memory. During the game after the tragedy, he wore writing on his cleats and his gloves that said: Jack Pinto, my hero. Jack was buried in a Victor Cruz jersey."
Tribute To Stan Musial January 23, 2013
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Maybe Stan Musial’s greatest baseball day came on May 2, 1954. It was a double header in St. Louis against the New York Giants. He hit three homers in the first game and two in the second."
Salute To Adam Merchant November 30, 2012
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Adam is in remission after battling Burkitt lymphoma, a cancer that attacks the lymphatic system. Through the kindness of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Adam received his wish: to see his favorite team play, the defending Super Bowl champions New York Giants. Not only did he see his Giants defeat the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night, but Adam also delivered an impromptu, pregame motivating speech to the Giants, which many of the team’s players cited as an inspiration to their 38-to-10 victory over the mighty Packers. Adam described the night as a “dream,” but it is the rest of us who should be moved by Adam’s bravery and persistence battling lymphoma. The Make-A-Wish Foundation brightens so many young lives, and I thank them and the New York Giants for helping make Adam’s dream come true."
