The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"Did you know that the NCAA used to be against post-season bowl games? It's true; back in 1937, they issued a report which concluded the bowl games had no place in college football, because they, quote, serve no sound educational ends, and such promotions merely trade upon intercollegiate football for commercial purpose, unquote. I read that and I thought, how quaint. The NCAA actually believed it could keep its athletic programs uncorrupted by professional sports interests. That's like trying to keep lobbying money out of politics. Also, we used to make fun of the names of the bowl games. We'd ask, what time does the Toilet Bowl come on? Or the Cereal Bowl. Or the Salad Bowl. Whoops, there actually used to be a Salad Bowl, played in Montgomery Stadium in Phoenix, between 1948-1955. Also, Auburn and Villanova traveled to Havana, Cuba to play in the Bacardi Bowl back in 1937. Of course, this was before Castro turned the island into a commie sh*thole. Back in the day, there were, like, 4 bowl games, the Rose Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Sugar Bowl, and Orange Bowl, all shown on New Year's Day, and everybody watched them. Now there's about 40 of them. And nobody cares. But let's start out the new year on a happy note: Hillary Clinton will not be president in 2019."
