Football - the new opiate of the masses

Karl Marx, a favorite economic theorist of the junior senator from Illinois (henceforth to be known here as The Tragedy in Waiting), once said that religion was the opiate of the masses.

Well, maybe back in the 19th cenutry it was.

Now, though, I'd have to say it's sports.

And, in this little corner of heaven, there is no more powerful opiate than college football.

It certainly helped yours truly forget about the peril we all face in the not so distant future. At least for a little while.

I am getting as tingly as Chris Matthews at a Democratic debate thinking about the possibility of a Gators and Raiders national championship game . . .

Orange and Blue . . . and Red and Black!
