Congress calls hearing on 'deeply flawed' BCS

I've been reading that Congress is now getting involved in the Bowl Championship Series, also known as the BCS (or just plain BS, for short!). According to this Sports Illustrated article:
A House Energy and Commerce subcommittee, charged with regulating America's sports industry, announced Friday it will conduct a hearing on the BCS next week, after this season's bowl matchups are determined.

I was all for Congress stepping into the baseball steroids controversy. Steroids are very dangerous and the professional leagues were doing very little to control the problem. However, I think there are other problems in which Congress should involve itself -- the energy crisis, the Social Security system and that nasty situation in Iraq.

The "flawed" BCS system just doesn't compare to these other issues.
