Sen. Snowe cheers on eponymous softball team

There’s apparently no business like “Snowe Business,” or at least no softball team.

The Senate Softball League team from the office of Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) is celebrating a victory, winning its first division championship on Monday. Snowe Business, which is a nod to the senator’s position as ranking member of the Senate Small Business Committee, is undefeated, with an 8-0 record.

In a statement to ITK, Snowe boasted, “As we’ve witnessed over the past decade, New Englanders have a knack for outlasting the competition and racking up sports championships. I am proud my office’s softball team is quickly becoming a part of that tradition.” And the senior senator’s pushing for her aptly named team to go all the way: “While they have yet to claim the ultimate prize, I am confident that Snowe Business is poised to make a serious run at the Senate Softball League trophy this year.”

Snowe Business faces off next against some fellow Mainers: the Maine LobStars, from the office of Republican Sen. Susan Collins. Maybe the winner can also claim the title of Best Pun-Loving New England Team Name.
