Obama Takes On the BCS

Geoffrey Norman laments the idea recently floated by President Obama to investigate the BCS - that's Boal Championship Series, the method by which college football national champions are selected, for the uninitiated - for possible anti-trust violation.

Personally, I say: go for it! Let Congress investigate. Let them hold hearings on steroids in baseball, adultery in golf, illegal handling of the ball in soccer, improperly tightened tennis racquets, and whether or not disabled sprinters with electric-powered prosthetics should be allowed to compete in the Olympics. Bring it on!

Because, I figure, if they're spending their time on sports, that leaves less time to pass "stimulus" packages, "fix" our health-care system, and institute cap-and-trade rules on our carbon emissions.
