  Mr. REID. I ask unanimous consent that the Senate proceed to S. Res. 
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. The clerk will report the resolution by title.
  The legislative clerk read as follows:

       A resolution (S. Res. 287) congratulating the Boston Red 
     Sox on winning the 2013 World Series.

  There being no objection, the Senate proceeded to consider the 
  Mr. REID. I further ask unanimous consent that the resolution be 
agreed to, the preamble be agreed to, the motions to reconsider be made 
and laid upon the table, with no intervening action or debate.
  The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
  The resolution (S. Res. 287) was agreed to.
  The preamble was agreed to.
  (The resolution, with its preamble, is printed in today's Record 
under ``Submitted Resolutions.'')
  Mr. REID. Madam President, if it were in order, which it is not, I 
would ask that the Record be spread and this resolution be passed with 
the name ``Tim Mitchell'' on it.
  I have followed baseball since the time I was a little boy, and I 
consider myself a fan of baseball, but I have never known a more rabid 
fan of a baseball team than Tim Mitchell, whom we depend on so very, 
very much to help us work through all that we do in the Senate. He is a 
fan bordering on illness in supporting this team. He has a Red Sox tie, 
a pen. I expect next to see, if he lifted up his shirt, that he would 
have a tattoo of the Red Sox.
