Ball State football coach Pete Lembo often talks of not just developing his Cardinals team when it comes to football, but also when it comes to the "whole person."  Friday morning was another example of that, as the Cards took a visit to the United States Capitol.

Guided by Congressman Luke Messer (Indiana's Sixth), the Cardinals toured the Capitol building and spent 15 minutes in the House Chamber gallery watching the U.S. House of Representatives conduct business.  The team also stopped in the building's "crypt," where George Washington was originally intended to be burried, while also seeing the famous rotunda and the original House Chamber. 

The experience was a unique one for Ball State.  Due to the current government shutdown, the Cardinals were the only people touring the Capitol for much of their trip.  Congressman Messer took the time to shake hands with nearly every player before taking a photo with the team on the Capitol steps.

Ball State meets the University of Virginia on the football field Saturday at noon.  The game will be broadcast live on 104.1 WLBC beginning with Mutual Bank Pregame at 11am.  Fans can also follow the game on television with FOX Sports Net.
