    WSJ view on Alabama v ND

    A snarky, humorous, look at the BCS Nat Champ game.

    " Half of the pleasure of watching SEC football, it seems, is reminding everyone else how good SEC football is, and, by extension, how bad everyone who doesn't play in the SEC is. There's real truth to the strength of the conference (the SEC has produced college football's last six national champions) but after a while, all that talk about SEC superiority and "big-man football" becomes repetitive and a little unbearable, like the guy who stops by your desk every Monday morning, does unsolicited calf stretches in his khakis and talks about the awesome half-marathon he ran over the weekend. I get it. You guys rule. Please stop."

    And another - more straight up view of the SEC Champ. from the same paper

    "Those games carry the stench of "inventory," tacked-on contests for TV rights-holders to hype. The SEC's game is simply unmissable most years, and was especially so Saturday. Here were two one-loss teams at the Georgia Dome once again playing for a BCS championship berth. "Every element, it really was a showcase for us," said SEC commissioner Mike Slive, owner of the most valuable portfolio in college sports."

    Yeah, if only he was smart enough to use it to make the most money in college sports.

    I want that donut.

    And before you have time to say no, the waiter is ticking off the establishment's desserts, the last of which is an astonishing confection called The Sinful Devil's Deep-Fried Doughnut Straight-to-Rehab Sugar Bender. And The Sinful Devil's Deep-Fried Doughnut Straight-to-Rehab Sugar Bender is something in which handmade doughnuts are deep-fried by sugar elves in a sugar barrel,then wrapped in a chocolate mattress and baked into the floorboards of a gingerbread house, where they rest for a thousand years until they are excavated and bathed anew in honey and butter and sugar. Somewhere along the way, a chocolate truffle, a peanut-butter cup and a wheelbarrow of whipped cream join the party.
