HOH's One-Minute Recess: Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Paul's father, presidential candidate and Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), was also at the game, and your pool spotted him holding his wife's hand as they left the game.

Also at the game, was House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), with a huge entourage and a very serious look on his face. Hard week, Congressman?

Rep. William Lacy Clay (D-Mo.) was seen limping through the stadium sans shoes, probably feeling the effects of a couple of hard plays.

Another funny moment was when a program passer-outter offered a program to a staffer for Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.). Take a program, support your boss, he said. The staffer declined because she said her boss wasn't playing.

But Roby did play. She was the only woman to play on the Republican side actually.

Your pooler also spotted former Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) in an old uniform, Rep. Mary Bono Mack (R-Calif.) in a No. 14 jersey cheering on husband Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.) and former Rep. Allen Boyd (D-Fla.).

The parents of Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) were seen in matching Shimkus T-shirts and cheering on their son. The two flew out for especially for the game, though your pool didn't catch from whence they came.

Until next year, folks, that's a full lid.
