Chuck List: A college football tourney; if I'm dreaming, don't pinch me

A one-man opinion poll.

    A tournament? Really? You mean logic and reason has prevailed in the face of longstanding chaos? That the wishes of a discontented fan base are occasionally heard? That greed is no longer an obstacle for truth? That I can start watching college football's postseason again (proud to say I haven't watched a bowl game in 12 years)? At the risk of sounding melodramatic, I have been waiting for this moment all my life. College football has finally risen from the coma that has long kept a great sport in the dark and they are reaching for the light. Imagine a world that rewards a champion for actually winning on the field. Why, it's simply glorious. Of course, the four-team format will never work. BUT. It's the stepping stone college football fans have been waiting for, to finally have our tournament. If I'm dreaming, don't pinch me.

    Utah judge Scott Johansen sentenced a 13-year-old girl to 30 days in detention and 276 hours of community service for cutting a 3-year-old girl's hair without consent. Johansen then agreed to shave 150 hours off the sentence if the teenager's complaining mother was willing to cut her daughter's pony tail off right there in the courtroom. Dude even brought his own scissors. The mom did it. The girl is still in tears. And mom has now filed a complaint with the state's judicial commission. He proved exactly how hurtful the crime the teenager took so lightly actually was. Oh wise Judge Johansen, you're like a miniature Buddha covered in hair.

    If you haven't watched the HBO Real Sports episode featuring Lomong, watch it. Lomong is an Olympic hopeful who ran track for Northern Arizona University. His story is the American dream. He was one of the Lost Boys of Sudan, forced into training to become a killer and soldier, starved and beaten to make tough enough for the role. An American Christian group brought him to the US, along with 15 others. Lomong didn't see America as a place with a struggling economy, or partisan politics, or a slumping real estate market. No, Lomong saw America as Heaven. Let me repeat that -- he saw America as leaving Hell on Earth and ascending to Heaven. No doubt -- America needs tougher laws regarding immigration, but we must never lose sight of what we represent for most of the world. America must always stand as a land of opportunity, the beacon of light in a dark, dark world.

  • Jan Brewer

    Monday, Arizona's governor claimed victory after the Supreme Court upheld one provision of SB 1070. 'Oh, but it's the big one! The one we wanted! Yay, we won! We won!' I'm paraphrasing of course... Jan Brewer lost Monday. SB 1070 lost Monday. As far as I can tell, the provision allows local police officers to flag illegal immigrants in the system -- nothing more. They can't arrest. They can't deport. They can't even detain. Those were the other provisions of the bill -- the ones the Supreme Court shot down. Illegal immigration remains under federal control. This isn't opinion on my part. It's not even analysis. This is just me reading the scoreboard.

  • President Barack Obama

    President Barack Obama

    Wow, what a week for the POTUS. SB 1070, ObamaCare, AND Fast & Furious. This could be the defining week of Obama's term. ObamaCare and SB 1070 should surprise no one. He ran on these issues. Shouldn't he fight for what he believes in? So then... Why is the president on the DOWN list? If Attorney General Eric Holder has nothing to hide regarding Fast & Furious, then why does the president need to invoke, for the first time of his presidency, executive privilege? Of course the public thinks you're hiding something.

    Did the mother of Kim Kardashian actually direct her daughter's sex tape? The one that launched her fame? The one Kim admitted on Oprah was responsible for her fame? According to Kim Kardashian's ex-husband Kris Humphries (and what an epic romance that was), Kim's mom saw the sex tape and told her to reshoot it because she didn't look pretty enough. WHAT THE ------?!? That's your advice, mom? I mean, what ever happened to eat all your vegetables?
