Squash with Al Franken

In this "Talk Stoop" segment for NBC New York, Kirsten Gillibrand mentions that she tries to play squash with Al Franken every week. And he always wins.

KG was the captain of the squash team at Dartmouth in 1987-88 (she had played tennis at Emma Willard). Her former coach there told Vanity Fair last year that the then-Tina Rutnik "won with finesse and knowing where to hit the ball."

Also: She says it doesn't bother her when people call her "Kristen."

I loved this piece! Really showed another side of our junior senator.
I hate to be trite but she really has lost her baby weight since she took office and looks just terrific. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when she plays squash will Al Franken!

Ms. Gillibrand is paid over $200,000 annually by the taxpayers and we her constituents have little to show for our payment. I don't understand why are we would be interested in what she does in her free time with another senator in the taxpayer-funded Senate gym. Please AoA, lets keep the politicians off this site.

Yeah, that's a good idea, keep politicians off this site. Because Albany really doesn't have anything to do with politics, and i'm sure no one in albany is interested in politics or politicians, either.
