March MADNESS!!!!!!!

Just to keep it clear, I don't really care about basketball.

I HAVE been watching a lot of it lately.

Anyways, I was just thinkin', you know, about professional/college sports. There's a lot of freakin' money going into that stuff. And I can't help but wonder, "What the hell is the point?". And then I realized the only reason sports teams exist: To make the fans go, "Wooooooooooooo!". Thats it. Their team wins, and they go, "Wooooooooooooo!".

Millions upon millions of dollars for "Woooooooo!".

I'm not saying its wrong. In fact, I don't think its wrong at all.

It just amazes me.

In the documentary film Manufacturing Consent Noam Chomsky asserts that professional and school sports serve to induce "irrational attitudes of submission to authority." Even though I love football, I've got to admit that he's got a point.
