And ElDavo: don`t be a poor loser.
emzrok, if you can get people to pay to watch you draw a picture, then you`d have all the money you need.
McGovern: First of all, football brings in enough for most big schools to cover everything. Second, a good sports program creates pride in a school and increases donations. Even from people that never went there.
Schools aren`t losing money giving out money for sports scholarships and wouldn`t give out more academic scholarships if they didn`t have an athletics program. They`d just have less money overall.

It doesn`t help that this guy is my hero.
I`m stumped. It`s his choice, I guess.
Ummm.....so why is it athletes can get a full college college scholarship and those that excede academically get nothing or next to nothing?
Yeah, Bush did that... it`s called No Child Left Behind, and now we`re left with a bunch of fat lazy kids because schools` funding goes into education and not other things like sports, arts, etc.
And the kicker is, we`re not any smarter, in general, than we were before... just fatter.
How about inviting teachers from schools that tested above expectations? Makes sense to me.
"I`m not going because it`s not an invitation to the Steelers, it`s an invitation to whoever wins!"
It`s a pretty big honour considering that professional sport is essentially just entertainment for the masses, and any given result makes no lasting impact on society or culture. Get over yourself, and be humble enough to accept the honour.
Every championship team goes to the White House. UNC basketball and the Phillies were just there recently.
I think he`s quite right! I doubt he got into the sport for the sole purpose of going to the Whitehouse anyway. On top of that I dont think he has to justify his reason either!
