New York Senator Chuck Schumer Has No Idea Syracuse is out of the 2014 NCAA College Basketball Tournament

Chuck Schumer Didn't Know Syracuse Lost

You’ll have to excuse our United States Senators if they’re too busy doing, um, honestly I’m not sure what they do (kind of like radio personalities) – to follow the college basketball tournament. So it was quite a shock to New York’s senior senator Chuck Schumer to learn that the Syracuse Orange were trounced out of the NCAA tournament.

This video was shot just before a press conference on important senatorial business when Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) [ed. – I’ve always wanted to write a congressperson’s name followed by their┬áparty affiliation and state; it makes me feel like a real┬ájournalist] was getting ready to hold a press conference with Schumer and Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) [ed. – look, I got to do it again!]. Reid asks is everyone was ready and you hear Schumer interject ‘Go Syracuse!’ only to be informed that the Orangemen didn’t fare so well this year.
