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 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.  

During the debate, though, most politicians avoided tweeting about the game. Sen.

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.
