A league of their own

This was initially a response to Columbine's comments about Giuliani's recent statements about some sports issue, but for some reason I feel like I'm seeing a lot more weblog traffic this year dedicated to the "world series", and it all comes across as "hugely tax subsidized corporation with massively overpaid employees that advertises itself as part of my locality is better than your hugely subsidized corporation..." rhetoric.

I honestly don't understand why Boston area residents don't, for instance, sit around in bars talking about how CSFB is doing this year, while the North Carolinaians get drunk and threaten to whup some San Franciscan ass when Charles Schwab outperforms BofA.

Y'all are weird.

To put it simply: Sports transcends class boundaries.

So that is why a co-worker dropped by my office to share some news, in this order of priority:

(1) Nebraska is firing their athletic director!!one11!

(2) Our boss's boss was in a car accident.
