Basketball isn’t any better. That season runs far too long as well. Here’s a good rule of thumb. If, when your season starts you have to heat the arena to make it habitable, and when it ends you need to air-condition it for the same reason, it’s too damned long.
Yesterday, Kris Allen was crowned the new American Idol in an election that tallied nearly a hundred million votes. The day before the State of California was bankrupted and its assets sold to Dubai in an election that garnered four million votes.
