Walter Mondale Meets his Match
Firstly, I'd like to congratulate us on reaching the 100 post mark. That's all I have to say on that.
On to real stuff, I think it has been mentioned before, but the new aspect of ESPN polls which show how each state breaks down is great. But today's poll was especially enjoyable. The question posed was "Who would the Steelers be better off starting at QB against the Ravens." The choices were Tommy Maddox, the only ever XFL MVP and a QB, and Antwaan Randle-El, who, although he played QB in college at Indiana, has always been a wideout in the pros. The final outcome: Maddox 35% (only carried Montana and its three electoral votes. Which begs the question: Why do the people of Montana like Tommy Maddox?) Randle-El 65%. Now, I wasn't all that surprised that Randle-El won, I mean Tommy Maddox was the MVP of the XFL. What surprised me was the margin of Randle-El's victory. He raped Maddox. Can this year really get any worse for Tommy Maddox? First, the one game he did start, he blew for the Steelers. Then, because of that horrible performance, his family was verbally abused. Now, he loses an election for QB to someone who doesn't even play the position. Ouch.
Update: Not only has Maddox has lost a percentage point in the popular vote, he has lost the one state he had previously carried, Montana.
