Pelosi congratulated the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday for winning a spot in the World Series as a result of Monday night's game, which took place at the same time as the final presidential debate between Mitt Romney and President Obama.

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.
