“For real! The Senator’s swoosh, at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center in Cape Cod, Massachusetts on April 27, caused the group of third graders in the bleachers to go wild. The video of Republican Sen. Brown, a former Tufts University basketball star who’s up for re-election, was circulated by his campaign.”
