Congress To Investigate The BCS

Oh fer cryin' out loud guys. With all of the problems this country is facing is launching an investigation into the college Bowl Championship Series real high up on the priority list. This congress is probably going to be the first to post negative numbers for approval ratings.

I am seriously disappointed to see that a representative from Georgia Lynn Westmoreland (GA-3)(R) is involved in this farce.

Congressional leaders from several states, including Georgia Republican Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, question whether the BCS violates the federal Sherman Antitrust Act, a law passed in 1890. In a formal House resolution and in a letter to President-elect Barack Obama, the Congressional members said the BCS unfairly prohibits many small colleges from competing for a championship berth. Rep. Neil Abercrombie, a Democrat from Hawaii, said, "The anti-competitive effects of the BCS far outweigh its procompetitive benefits. The most obvious anti-competitive effect is the vast difference in revenue generated in the postseason between the BCS and non-BCS schools."

Steroids in baseball, videotaping in football and now BCS selections in college football. Get out of my sports, get out of my pocket and get out of my life you bunch of overpaid, out of work, ambulance chasing, lawyers.

Meanwhile enjoy the greatest fight song evah!
