    We need cancer. It helps prevent aging.

    Sadly, so true…but hard to see how to whack ’em back.

    Boy is this true. Remember that insane highschool football stadium they built in Texas at the same time they were cutting class resources?


    I’m so glad I got my public education before it was ruined by political demagogues.

    Thought that was why we have guns?

    This nation hates smart people, because smart people tell us not to do things that are fun and easy, like eat hamburgers three times a day or pump poison into the ground where our drinking water is or invade other countries for profit.

    What smart kids need isn’t media attention — what they need (and what all kids need) is a school system that will challenge them and teach them to think.

    This is a great toon from a cartoonist who only draws about sports. Good to know Drew’s priorities are in the right place.

    Sports will always be revered by humans. Humans have an innate need to feel superior. You can see it in nationalistic jingoism, being cock-sure that my religion is the correct one, racial/social discrimination, even social cliques in high school. I’m sure you can find more examples.

    The best part about sports is that we don’t have to do the dominating; we wave a banner or wear a T-shirt or a cap (backwards, of course, so that the sun can stay off our necks while it bakes our eyes), and the other guys do it for us. Taken in this context, isn’t it a small price to pay one person $10 million per year? Isn’t it worth much more?

    This comic hit close to home as my Wife has stage 4 breast cancer. We as a nation do have misplaced priorities fawning over celebrities like their gods while people who do the real important work are hidden in the shadows.

    Pat yourself on the back. Very, very profound and truthful post and it should be flagged. Flagged as AWESOME!

    Best wishes for you and your wife. I lost my mother to cancer and couldn’t give a crap less about athletics.

    Not only do most universities pay coaches a LOT more than professors, when I was at university, they took the budget for lab equipment from physics and chemistry budgets to buy new uniforms for the football team!! Many schools in the south held kids back in grade school so they’d be “big enough” to play high school football. It’s been a sick obsession with sports for a long time.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. The culture of sports worship is pure, distilled tribalism, modernized and sold for a profit.
    “I’m better than that guy because I’m (waving the right flag / wearing the right colors / holding the right holy book/etc.)!” Anything for that sense of superiority without actually having to do something to EARN it.

    I find this comic hilarious considering the considering the fact that the Jock Huffer only draws nothing but sports related editorials.

    Just got my “Harpers”, per their index in this issue: Percentage increase in per-student spending at major public U.S. colleges since 2005: 23. Percentage increase in spending on college athletes: 61.
