Was reading an article about the upcoming college football playoffs in 2014. For those who don't know, instead of just 2 teams (like now), it will be a 4 team playoff format.
So I'm reading the comments, and some guy says it should be a 32 team playoff. After a 14 week season, he wants to add another 5 weeks after the last games in early December. For college kids.
So I went a bit sarcastic on him in my reply:
So where are you getting the 5 weeks it will take for this to happen? Why not make it 64 teams and run it to the end of February? Better yet, 128 so it can last into March!
I think you stumbled onto a great idea- after the NFL regular season, all 32 teams play in the playoffs! And we can extend March Madness to 256 teams! The MLB can extend the post season to 5 playoff series (2 teams get to come back in once eliminated). The NBA can extend the playoffs so it overlaps with the beginning of the next season. NASCAR has to run all races once to the left, and then turn it around and race back to the right. Olympic bobsledding will now be timed on how fast the team can push the sled up the track. Equestrian will require the horse to jump over the obstacles backwards. Chess will now have 4 layers of pieces for each side. The #2 pencil will now be a #4 pencil.
I hope you are seeing my point here.
See, I'm not evil just here- I spread the wealth around.
