The decisive seventh game of the National League Championship Series between the Giants and the St. Louis Cardinals was still going after the conclusion of the debate, which meant many politicos probably caught a few innings.

The Chicago Bears also played the Detroit Lions on Monday night. As Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.) noted, the evening was packed for politicians who are also sports fans.
