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'.
