One Last Point: Don't forget to vote

Giants won the World Series! I’m sure a lot of San Fran fans are sleeping off the hangover they have from partying through the last two nights, but not me, I didn’t even watch the series.

I only cared about the outcome of the game because I had a bet riding on the series. I tuned in to the ESPN app on my iPhone for the fourth and final game of the series during my rehearsal.

I won all of a dollar. Yippee for me.

~~~

This will be my final column before the 2012 Presidential election.

I only have one piece of advice for everyone.

Vote.

I don’t care who you vote for, just vote. 

One of the greatest benefits we have as Americans is to be able to vote. 

Educate yourself on the issues, make an informed decision and then express yourself on the ballot.

Personally, I think we could have some fun if we voted in sports – for more than the All-Star Team.

Let’s say we just voted two teams to play a national championship game in the college football world.

It wouldn’t matter who had the best record, it would simply be an equation where the team with the largest, computer-savvy and active fan base would make it to the finals. 

Of course, if we voted teams in and they spent all of their money on advertising, then I would have some teams to hate: those who bought their way into the finals.

We could vote on who gets to be NBA commissioner. 

I’d pick me.

I’d be an awesome commissioner and, of course, the first rule I would put into effect would be that every NBA team had to have a starter over the age of 40 and they had to play at least 20 minutes per game.

If that was the case, I could work really hard for the next two years and have a chance at playing professional basketball. 

We could also vote on whether to allow steroids to be used in professional sports. 

Well, I guess the vote would be more on whether anyone was allowed to care about it. The drugs are already being used. 

Vote Jef for NBA commissioner. 

Or, just vote.
