Stunning parallels

They don't have a whole lot in common but look at some of the stunning parallels between the Boston Red Sox and the LSU Tigers football program.

Following the 2003 season, in early January, 2004, LSU won its first football national championship in 45 years. Later that year, the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series in 86 years.

This past October, the Red Sox won the World Series again. This past Monday, LSU won the national championship again.

The Red Sox had their world championship upstaged last fall by Alex Rodriguez's decision to opt of his contract during Game 4 of the World Series. Rodriguez was roundly ripped for a self-serving move.

LSU had its moment upstage on Tuesday when Georgia president Michael Adams unveiled his plan for a college football playoff.

I guess Adams just discovered that college football doesn't have a playoff system. Either that or he just pulled the most self-serving act since, well, Alex Rodriguez.

Just some interesting parallels.
