Really? They Have Time for This?

House lawmakers are gearing up for a vote as soon as next week on a bill aimed at forcing a national college-football playoff.
The quote above is from an article in the Wall Street Journal. The "House lawmakers" mentioned are the people elected to "serve" in the House of Representatives in Washington, DC. Those are the people who make federal laws. Apparently, having solved the recession, health care, wars on terror, Afghanistan, Iraq, drugs, and poverty, having gotten to the bottom of "Gatecrashergate," having brought down the jobless rate, now they have time to really focus on something important.

Forcing college football teams to have a playoff.

Approval of the legislation by an Energy and Commerce subcommittee would represent the most significant action yet by Congress in its oversight of college football. Plans for a markup next week, still tentative as of late Friday, appeared to signal growing congressional support for the idea, which President Barack Obama also backed during the 2008 campaign.

This is legitimately aggravating, but it does offer me a cheap opportunity to post photos of hot sideline reporters, which is always good for a few thousand extra hits:

If there is a congressional hearing aimed at forcing college football teams to engage in a "playoff," can we expect ESPN sideline "reporter" Erin Andrews to cover it?

Or how about Jenn Brown, who is also an ESPN sideline reporter, as you can plainly see from the above photo?

this is so stupid that I admire that you could bring yourself to write a coherent article about it. all I can do for a comment is ramble, edit rambling, and say, "wtf?"

*sigh* Really we should boot out the lot of them.

When is the American public going to wake up?

Really, when you think about it, the uncertainty over who is the top college football team is tearing this country apart.
