Who Cares?

Last night was game 1 of the NBA championship series, and tomorrow night is a Mike Tyson fight. Who cares?

There was a time when boxing was America's top sport, but it ceased to that long ago. So few people care about boxing that the only way to sell this fight is to pit Tyson against a 6'-6" opponent and have women fight in the undercard.

And the NBA is terrible, too - it has not been basketball for a long time. Officials do not call traveling, palming, or fouls near the basket. They check the names on players' jerseys before deciding whether to blow the whistle. It's a joke.

And I love the way the NBA calls its champion the World Champion. Uh, no. The NBA champion is...the NBA champion, and that's all. The same goes for the NFL and MLB.
