WASHINGTON (CNN) – On Tuesday, partisan politics will be put aside for a few hours when members of Congress team up with former NFL players for the 4th annual 'Longest Yard' Congressional football game.
No tackling is allowed in this friendly game of flag football being played for charity, and the only prize on the line is bragging rights.
Several former NFL players will be on hand as coaches and players including former NFL players Ken Harvey, John Booty, and Ed Lee.
Democratic Reps. Jesse Jackson Jr of Illinois and Heath Shuler - a former NFL quarterback - will take to the gridiron, along with Republican Reps. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Jeff Flake of Arizona, among others on the bipartisan congressional roster.
All proceeds for the event, which is taking place at the Washington D.C. Armory, go to the Capitol Police Foundation and the Washington Literary Council.
