At a Georgetown Prep reunion event this weekend, Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh was welcomed with cheers and selfie requests, according to a Sunday New York Times report.

During a football game, he posed for a picture with his old classmates — after requesting that everyone drop their beers.

After the game, Georgetown Prep president Rev. James Van Dyke reportedly addressed Kavanaugh’s class of 1983, saying that “we’ve all been thrown into the mix together” and that he’d “heard so many of your names.” He also praised “the loyalty that you have had to each other, the way that you have looked after each other, and not just in the big stories but also a lot of small stories.”

According to the New York Times, Van Dyke’s speech was interrupted with cheers of “Squi!” and “P.J.!” referring to two of Kavanaugh’s classmates that came up repeatedly during the Senate hearings called because he was accused of sexual assault by professor Christine Blasey Ford.
