Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) recently used professional hockey, one of the nation's most popular sports, as an example of how little he could care.

In an interview with the Huffington Post on Thursday, Reid responded to a question about competition for the Majority Leader's position by saying, "I feel about them like I do the Stanley Cup. I could care less. Don't follow it."

Reid's lack of interest is understandable: Nevada isn't home to any major professional sports teams, and the closest NHL franchise is the Phoenix Coyotes, who declared bankruptcy last year.
