The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Got Nothin' Better To Do?

Then why not muck with a private industry and ruin it for everyone. 

WASHINGTON (AP) - A House subcommittee approved legislation Wednesday aimed at forcing college football to switch to a playoff system to determine its national champion, over the objections of some lawmakers who said Congress has meatier targets to tackle.

The bill, which faces steep odds, would ban the promotion of a postseason NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision game as a national championship unless it results from a playoff. The measure passed by voice vote in a House Energy and Commerce Committee subcommittee, with one audible "no," from Rep. John Barrow, D-Ga.

"What can we say - it's December and the BCS is in chaos again," said the bill's sponsor, Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, the top Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. He said the BCS system is unfair and won't change unless prompted by Congress.

Hey, we've done it with every other industry in this nation, .. and that has turned out so very well hasn't it...., then why not do it with college sports?

But, note who is crying foul and who is pushing this?  It's a so-called republican that is trying to get his finger in to someone else's business.  And it is a so-called democrat that is saying.. "ho there".

My head hurts. Why are we paying these bumholes

Pardon me while I run to the bathroom.


Ok,   sorry.  I think I feel better now.

Let's read more in to this.  Maybe there really is a reason for this?  Is there corruption?  Maybe a mafia slave-trade system?

...although Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, has pressed for a Justice Department antitrust investigation into the BCS.

Shortly after his election last year, Barack Obama said there should be a playoff system.

In a statement before the vote, BCS executive director Bill Hancock said, "With all the serious matters facing our country, surely Congress has more important issues than spending taxpayer money to dictate how college football is played."

The subcommittee chairman, Rep. Bobby Rush, an Illinois Democrat who co-sponsored the bill, said, "We can walk and chew gum at the same time."

Hatch?  Hatch?  YOU ARE A FRIGGIN IDIOT!!!  

Anti-trust?  Really?  On college football?

According to Rep Rush, Congress don't care what the BCS, or anyone else it would seem based on their recent history, wants. They know best donchyaknow.

Oh, and winning a BCS championship?  Yeah, that's as easy as chewing gum.

Ohg, I gotta go to the bathroom again.  Pardon me while I flash my union card so I can enter my eco-carbon-neutral bathroom that takes 3 drops of water for each visit - but I have to spit in the recycle cup first.  Shhh....I pay my neighbors to spit in the cup too so that my low-flush soy toilet will actually flush.
