Sen.-elect Dick Blumenthal (D-Conn.) jumped off the political page and onto the sports page Tuesday night, at a record breaking game for his hometown UCONN Huskies women's basketball team.

The former state Attorney General was snapped in the background of an ESPN video clip, which landed him a cameo spot on the hugely popular ESPN.com front page Wednesday morning, under the headline "Highlight of the Night."

Blumenthal had pretty nice seats for the game, which marked the 89th straight win for the Huskies and the longest winning streak in college basketball history.
