I’ve been reading that Congress is now getting involved in the Bowl Championship Series, also known as the BCS (or just plain BS, for short!). According to this Sports Illustrated article:
A House Energy and Commerce subcommittee, charged with regulating America’s sports industry, announced Friday it will conduct a hearing on the BCS next week, after this season’s bowl matchups are determined.
I was all for Congress stepping into the baseball steroids controversy. Steroids are very dangerous and the professional leagues were doing very little to control the problem. However, I think there are other problems in which Congress should involve itself — the energy crisis, the Social Security system and that nasty situation in Iraq.
The “flawed” BCS system just doesn’t compare to these other issues.
