McCaskill shows Mizzou pride, and fashion smarts, for March Madness

It's Friday, and the first round of the NCAA Tournament is offering lawmakers a chance to support something other than legislation. Namely, school pride fashion.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) got decked out in University of Missouri attire, and she wasn't shy about sharing her sartorial sense with her fans on Twitter.

She tweeted:

I know it's corny but I'm wearing my Mizzou basketball tshirt today. M I Z.

Tenth-seeded Missouri is tipping-off against seventh-seeded Clemson University in a battle of the Tigers at 2:35 p.m.

McCaskill earned both a bachelor's degree and law degree from the University of Missouri. But as a sports fan, she's loyal to her conference, the Big 12, as well as her alma mater.

The first-term senator tweeted her support for other Big 12 schools in the tournament, and talked a little Twitter smack about its rival conference, saying the "Big East is overrated."
