First and (really) Long

The New York Times is reporting that a group of wealthy investors wants to start the United Football League, something of a competitor to the NFL. Do these people have nothing better to do with their money? Because if they don't, I could really use a new car.

Seriously, Vince McMahon (owner of World Wrestling Entertainment) tried this once before, and it lasted something like three seasons. I don't know what makes them think that this is going to work any better, but if they want to give it a go, they can be my guest. And maybe when it's over, if they still have some money to blow, they'll buy me a car...

UPDATE: Steve at No Runny Eggs corrected me, in that the XFL lasted only one season. I guess I thought it lasted longer but just wasn't that memorable... Also, if these wealthy investors still need to spend their money, my car was totalled last week... just sayin'.

According to Coop...

the world is going crazy, and I'm along for the ride.

Welcome to my new entry into the blogosphere. I'll be focusing a lot on issues in and around the Milwaukee (WI) area, but I'll be taking a stab at national stories as well. This will be a place for me to post my thoughts about things that are going on in the world today, and a place for you to sound off as well. Like something? Not so much? This is your place to rant, rave, and generally make your voice heard.

A few ground rules:
1. Keep it clean. You don't need to use bad language to make your point.
2. Keep it friendly. If you wouldn't say what you're about to say to someone's face, don't say it on this blog.
3. Keep it respectful. People of all backgrounds, beliefs, and opinions are welcome here. You can disagree with someone and that's fine, but don't insult them because they don't agree with you.

Enjoy, and welcome to According to Coop!
