Tom Quigley vs. Bernard Hopkins
It's crunch time in Harrisburg as the Pennsylvania Legislature works to meet the June 30 deadline for completing the 2010-11 budget, but there's always down time in the Legislature as the rank-and-file members wait for direction from the leadership.
During a break, State Rep. Tom Quigley, R-146th Dist., mugs for the camera with Light Heavyweight World Champion Bernard Hopkins, who was visiting the state Capitol this week.
Hopkins, a Philadelphia native, was honored by the House and Senate for his boxing achievements and community activities. The 46-year-old boxing legend recently won the WBC Light Heavyweight World Championship, becoming the oldest fighter in boxing history to win a world title.
