Well, this could be fun! Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor may be joining the congressional women’s softball team this year. During a House Appropriations hearing Thursday, Rep. Jo Ann Emerson said that Sotomayor and a couple of unnamed female cabinet secretaries have indicted a desire to play on the team. “Talk about the branches getting together!” said Rep. Jose Serrano. “I’ll have to show up.” The justice cheered the team from the sidelines last year; a court spokesman didn’t return our calls for comment.
