Bill Maher comments on the decline of baseball, and the vigorous insurgent success of football:
” . . . football is built on an economic model of fairness and opportunity, and baseball is built on a model where the rich almost always win and the poor usually have no chance. You have to be a rich [team] just to play. The Super Bowl is like Tila Tequila. Anyone can get in.
It’s from one of his recent New Rules segments. (I don’t have HBO so I never get to see his show, but do manage bits of it online)
