And government is doing everything it can to get into sports! Soon, MLB, NFL, and all the rest of professional sports will be dictated to by government bureacrats.

Bill, A full slate of weekend games in the NFL. Ech game ends up tied 21-21. High drams for the fans, right?
It has long seemed to me that there is far more rationality in sports, and in commentaries on sports, than there is in politics and in commentaries on politics. What has puzzled me is why this is so, when what happens in politics has far more serious effects on people's lives.

To take one common example, there are many people who believe that if the market fails, the government should step in. But, if Robinson Cano strikes out, does anyone suggest that the Yankees should send in a pinch hitter for him on his next time at bat?

Everyone understands that a pinch...
