In an effort to pollute every network with politics, in case you happened to somehow miss the Presidential campaign that has been going on for the past two years, the U.S. Presidential candidates appeared on ESPN at halftime of last night’s Monday Night Football game to not answer questions and mention football.
With the New Orleans Saints winning the Superbowl and curing the ailments of Hurricane Katrina, the country can move forward to the upcoming Olympics for the next patriotic cause: bailing out Team USA.
Scheduling the NHL All Star game for the bye weekend before the Superbowl was clever. With football resting and basketball season still early in its second trimester, I took a moment for the struggling league of the “big four” sports: hockey. I didn’t watch the All Star game. I tuned in for the actual entertaining portion of the festivities: the skills competition.
