With the obvious disclaimer that my writings have occasionally been weblished at MSNBC.com, and I do consider NewsCorp, parent company of Fox Everything, to be the single most evil media megacorporation currently in existance.

Yep, it’s the ad. First, I am pleasantly shocked that Rupert Murdoch or Roger Ailes would allow anything with the FOX name to advertise there, but the real issue is that it’s for the Fox Sports College Bowl Pick-Em Contest. Uh, didn’t the College bowl games finish a couple weeks ago? Or could this be for next football season? I had to know, so I clicked the ad:

Game Info
· FOX College Bowl Pick’em has ended. Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s game.

All things considered, that’s a relief.
