Ironically, the title of this post is the complete opposite of what the post is really about. But maybe that's just sarcasm; I've never been able to define irony, anyways.
Listen: there are a lot of stupid people in charge. A lot. And they come up with some pretty stupid shit. Here's some of the big ones:
- The 65 vs. 64 play-in game.
- The MLB All-Star game decides home field advantage in the World Series.
- The NBA's charge circle.
- The NBA Final's 2-3-2 format.
- Overtime in both pro and college football
Well I say no more. But that really isn't going to change anything. But let's keep track of all those dumb things, anyways because when you see them all lined up in a row, it's pretty impressive, in a "wow, that baseball stadium just got blowed up in four seconds" kind of way.
So the next time you see a dumb rule - that college football clock rule jumps to mind - or a stupid idea - MLB's steroid investigation fits - or just anything that doesn't make any sense, here's the place to immortalize it. OK, immortalize is too strong. But leave it in the comments and it will go in the little sidebar.
And hey, that's something, isn't it?
