George Carlin was wrong. I received an email today from MLB for a fantasy FOOTBALL league:
Subject: CBS SportsLine.com offers TWO Great Ways to Play Fantasy Football!
GET IN THE GAME....TWO WAYS TO PLAY!
1. PLAY FOR CASH PRIZES*
SportsLine.com's Fantasy Football 2002 game
allows you to join an existing league or start a new
one. The single game offers a high level of partici-
pation and competition, it's easier than ever to play,

$249.95 (additional teams $249.95)... $1,600 league prize
$99.95 (additional teams $79.95)... $600 league prize
$29.95 (additional teams $19.95)... $150 league prize
Pick your level of competition and get in the game!
2. RUN YOUR OWN LEAGUE
SportsLine.com's Football Commissioner online league
management software puts you in charge! It's a great
football stats service that is updated live (web or
wireless). You get customizable scoring and rules and
you can invite all your friends to play.
There's something wrong with this: CBS, unlike ABC (Disney) and Fox, does not even own a team, and football? It's like Army selling tickets to Navy games. Or Quisp shilling for Quake. Or Roger Clemens pitching for the Yankees. What? Oh yeah. You get my point though.
