Ass of the Week

There are three recipients for this week's award...Reps. Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii), Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) and Mike Simpson (R-Idaho). Apparently these three elected congressmen want to investigate college football's BCS (Bowl Championship Series.)

Don't these people have more important things to worry about? There is always a motive; if you read between the lines, the motive gets back to Hawaii and Boise State being kept out of the series despite having undefeated seasons. Why were these teams kept out of the BCS in the past? Because the invisible hand of economics dictates that not many people would watch those two teams. To quote elected official Neil Abercrombie, who argues for the very reason as to why these two teams were left out:

Abercrombie said the matter is worthy of federal review because college football is big business with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake.

"It's money. That's what this is all about," he said.

No sh*t. I'm sure these three entered politics to help people.

I'm sure congressmen Simpson is on the 3rd weiner-speeder-bike...
