July 8, 2009 - Opinion: Congress, the Bowl Championship Series, video games, and amateurism

On July 8, sports commentator Frank Deford provided an opinion on National Public Radio in relation to the likeness of video games and commercialism in college athletics:

"As sure as both the politicians and the citizens of this republic are unable to agree on much of anything anymore, there is one issue where all decent, God-fearing, right-thinking Americans from the president himself on down are of one mind. We all, everyone, are opposed to the college football Bowl Championship Series. Am I right? Honestly, you are more liable to find someone in favor of swine flu than the Bowl Championship Series."
