America loves a good subplot. How else, besides the porn thing, could a guy like Dustin Diamond get famous?
If youre looking for football with a side story, then todays game between the Arizona Cardinals and the St. Louis Rams is right up your alley. The main draw will be the Cards potent offense, but this game should have a nice B plot. Before the Rams step into University of Phoenix Stadium, theyll have to decide if they even want to win. Sure, no one likes losing, but a defeat would do the Rams a hell of a lot more good than a win. Thats because they will receive the 1st overall pick in Aprils draft if they finish with the worst record in the league. Fortunately for St. Louis, theyve sucked so much this year that they could easily tank their remaining games without arousing anyones suspicions.
