FOX Sports and the NFL Dramatize the Declaration of Independence

Um... What the hell was that? Fox opened its eighth hour of super bowl coverage with a dramatic reading of the Declaration of Independence by the likes of Tony Dungy, Peyton Manning, Steve Larget (boo, hiss, Mr. Conservative Senator prick), Don Shula, Roger Staubach and others. Why? I demand to know the meaning of this. Perhaps this only proves the point I will soon be making: that the country is getting the government it deserves, one where the Congress hold hearings about sports leagues. 

I can't wait till next year's US Open, when Pete Sampras, Billie Jean King and Roger Federer dramatize the Bill of Rights.
