quote of the day

for sports fans who wonder HOW playing and watching these trivial games can be SO satisfying, george will provides an explanation:

Sport—strenuous competition structured and restrained by rules—replicates the challenge of freedom and satisfies the human hunger for coherence. [article]

yes, perhaps. but what about those of us who are sports fans for the chance to catch a glimpse of one of janet jackson's knockers?

um. i need to clarify. i hate the NFL halftime show. i hate it because it takes away from the pure beauty of the sport. this year was a perfect example. i like what george will said because it is right. i agree with the coherence idea. and the zen idea (mine). those are some of the results from my search for meaning in sports.

i hate janet jackson's hooter. i hate michael jackson's nose. i hate everything about all the jacksons.

Hmmm, it always seemed perfectly obvious to me that sports were just a socially acceptible way for insecure men to play out their unconcious homosexual fantasies. But then, I was never a jock. . .
