Senator Blutarsky, T. Kyle, AuditDawg, et al, wouldn't this end of summer classic be made better by issuing ballots?

If it were left up to BCS supporters and college football traditionalists, Russia would probably be voted into this annual championship against East Germany.

Sorry, but I cannot pass up an opportunity to expose the utter ridiculousness of the way we decide who participates in the Football Bowl Series BCS championship game.
If Jim Tressel had a vote, the Buckeyes would be in Williamsport. BUI!

It’s that time of year again, baseball fans, the time when the idea of watching 12-year-old phenoms tear up the diamond is too good to pass up.

Yep, it’s time for the Little League World Series, and everyone here at NESN is fired up for the regional coverage in Bristol, Conn. In fact, everyone in the country—not just you baseball fans—should have an interest in this annual event.


Because we’ve all played baseball, softball or some form of organized sports as youths, haven’t we? For those of you who haven’t, I feel for you.
