cptjeff: RockChalkH1N1: What? According to the article he is powerful because he picks a march madness bracket, wants a college football playoff and doesn't want his snowflake to play football...

When the President says that he wouldn't want his kid to play football, it matters a little more than random JimBob in Kentucky saying the same thing.

Just sayin'.

That explains the amazing unpopularity of football.

/imagine a world where we don't have to rationalize our worship of Obama

The President can issue executive orders modifying how the Sports Broadcasting Act is implemented.  That alone should put him in the top 15.

Kittypie070: Damn me. they'll snivel and whimper at literally anything now.

How must it feel these days to be a Republican?

Pretty great.  Republicans do not have the same views politically.  How does it feel to be ignorant?
