WTF?

Via Oliver Willis:

A future NFL champion may someday be crowned overseas in a game witnessed predominantly by a foreign audience, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said.

"There's a great deal of interest in holding a Super Bowl in London," Goodell told reporters Monday. "So we'll be looking at that."

The commissioner said London's Wembley Stadium would make a great candidate for American pro football's biggest matchup, given the opening of the stadium's lastest incarnation and enthusiasm overseas for the game.

My opinion? String him up. If advocating playing the Super Bowl in a foreign country isn't treasonous, then I don't know what is. Have you heard FIFA talking about hosting the UEFA Cup Championship in D.C.? Or the World Cricket Championship being held in New York? Yeah, didn't think so.

Oh, and in other football related news, the Cowboys got stomped by New England on Sunday. Fortunately, the Redskins got thumped by the resurgent Packers on Sunday, to remain two games behind Dallas in the NFC East. Unfortunately, the Giants won last night to pull within one game. Fortunately the Cowboys play the mediocre Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, and may have a chance to get back on track.

UNT's Mean Green finally won a game, so I keep joking that the universe couldn't allow this to happen and keep the Cowboys in their winning streak. So, in other words, I apologize.
