As the NCAA Tournament semifinals kick off this weekend, Reps. Debbie Dingell (MI-12) and Jan Schakowsky (IL-09) wagered on whether the Michigan Wolverines or the Loyola Ramblers would win in Saturday’s Final Four game.
If the Wolverines win, Schakowsky will have to wear a Michigan jersey for a day, if Loyola wins, Dingell will have to sport Ramblers gear.
“Like all of America, I’ve fallen in love with Sister Jean and the Ramblers, but the Wolverines have John Dingell, Grammie and Coach Beilein on their side,” said Rep. Dingell. “As John Dingell said, we all ‘pray to the same guy upstairs, so we’ll just have to see what he decides.’ But what we do know is that Coach Beilein will have the Wolverines ready to go, and their well-balanced attack, rock-solid defense and strong team play will be tough to beat – even for the Ramblers and Sister Jean. We’re looking forward to cheering them on this weekend. Go Blue!”
“As much as I love Michigan superfans Debbie and John Dingell, I can’t wait to watch the Ramblers beat the Wolverines tomorrow,” said Rep. Schakowsky. “With Sister Jean on our side, Coach Porter Moses calling our shots, and the Ramblers exhibiting the team work and accuracy they have had all season long, there truly is ‘no finish line.’ Ramble on!”
The Wolverines will face the Ramblers in the NCAA Final Four game on Saturday, March 31, 2018. The game is at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas at 6:09 p.m. Eastern.
