I’m as a big sports fan as the next guy, but one thing I won’t do is compare a game to the war effort.
Imagine my beloved St. Louis Cardinals are playing the much despised Chicago Cubs. The Cardinals are are up by five, finishing the top of the ninth. Is this a cause for celebration? Is this a cause for victory? No. Unbelievable as it may seem, the Cubbies score five runs in the bottom of the ninth to throw the games into extra innings. There the score remains until 1:00 AM, five innings later. However, at the top of the 15th, the Cardinals fail to field a batter. The entire team has left the stadium. It seems that they are more worried about next day’s 1:00 PM game at home than finishing the game at hand. Who wins?If we follow the logic of Illinois Republican Congressman John Shimkus then he just called my beloved Chicago Cubs terrorist.
Congressman, you and your Cardinals can go 'Cheney' yourselves !
