The economy is in the shitter. The swine flu is everywhere. And the housing crisis continues. Yet Congress still has the time to talk about College Football. Normally, I’d be flattered. But not under these circumstances.
Today, Congress heard from my esteemed colleague and BCS coordinator John Swofford, who spoke to the merits of the current system. But many of the Congressmen, including Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, were skeptical. According to ESPN.com:
“It’s like communism,” Barton said at the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s commerce, trade and consumer protection subcommittee hearing. “You can’t fix it.”
Barton, the top Republican on the committee, quipped that the BCS should drop the “C” from its name because it doesn’t represent a true championship.
“Call it the ‘BS’ system,” he said to laughter.
Very funny, Barton. Let’s play another little wordgame. Rearrange the letters of Congress, and you get “Cons Erg.” Latin for Go Fuck Yourself.
Now you get back to fixing the economy, and I’ll get back to wiping my ass with my Utah Utes jersey.
