Leave It To Congress To Get Me To Defend the BCS
Here's one of those stories in which everyone involved just seems deserving of a wet willie: Congress is now apparently looking into college football's BCS system.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: nothing the government does after the Casey Martin case -- in which the Supreme Court decided it could dictate the rules of a sport to a professional sports association -- could possibly surprise me, but, that doesn't mean I can't think it's a giant waste of time and money.
The BCS is incredibly stupid and anyone who doesn't support a playoff in Division I-A college football is just plain wrong, but, what the hell business is it of Congress's?
House Subcommittee on Commerce Trade and Consumer Protection Chairman Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., if you're really that desperate to get your name in the paper, can't you just get caught taking bribes like Duke Cunningham?
