Some Thursday Sports Levity

From the reliably funny website “The Onion,” the following recap of the year in sports. My two favorites:

Jan. 4—USC wins the FedEx Orange Bowl to claim an undisputed No. 1 ranking and the national championship, defeating Oklahoma in the first half 55-17, Auburn in the third quarter 21-9, and a combined Utah/Boise State all-star squad in the fourth quarter 17-14. Head coach Pete Carroll praised his various opponents but conceded that the BCS championship system may be in need of further tweaking.

Don’t worry – my annual tome shrilly demanding a college football playoff is coming, perhaps tomorrow or early next week.

Apr. 5—The Baylor women’s basketball team defeats Michigan State to win the NCAA women’s championship, showing the nation and their own university what a Baylor team can do when it works hard, plays as a team, and does not conspire to murder one another.

    Aug. 1—Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Tice makes a preseason promise that the character and behavior of the players on this years’ team will soon make the fans forget the shameful off-field antics of Randy Moss.

    That’s funny, I don’t care who you are.
