I saw this and thought it was pretty clever of The Los Angeles Times to shatter expectations and give us a Naomi Klein sports column instead of the usual stuff about the depredations of multinational corporations:
It turned out, though, to just be a mistake — the column’s by Bob Baker. I agree, though, that it’d be really nice to see the Red Sox improbably lose. I am, however, considering violating my general anti-Boston principles to root for BU in college football, since there’d just be something awesomely bizarre about a team from the northeast winning a national championship. I mean, sure, it used to happen regularly before world war one but that was a long time ago.
