GRAHAM. Mr. President, I also want to congratulate the people of
Talkeetna. I wish I could go myself to the moose-dropping thing, and I
want to see that before I die.
Mr. President, I thank Senator Whitehouse for giving me this time.
College World Series Mr. President, in 3 minutes, the final game of the championship round of the College World Series takes place. Coastal Carolina is playing the University of Arizona.
Coastal Carolina is a relatively small school in Myrtle Beach. Dustin Johnson is a graduate and won the U.S. Open. But if you have been watching the College World Series, this baseball team is inspiring. Arizona and Coastal Carolina have had two great games. Tonight is the rubber match, winner takes all. I don't know what is going to happen. If Coastal Carolina falls short, we have won in every way we could win. It has been the most exciting World Series I can remember: South Carolina won back-to-back world championships.
Coastal Carolina, I know everybody in South Carolina is very proud, all the fans are very excited, and the best pitchers are on the mound tonight. So go Chanticleers. I am going to go home and watch the baseball game.
I thank Senator Whitehouse for letting me say that.
The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Senator from Rhode Island.
