Bobby Bowden: Computer Guru

In "honor" of Alaska Senator Ted "The Internet is a series of tubes" Stevens, the MZone proudly presents its first ever Ted Stevens Computer Literacy Award to...

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden for this explanation he gave to reporters who asked why his son, Jeff, resigned as offensive coordinator:

"Because you all ignited it. You listen to eBay and e-mail and all that junk, and you all kept writing about it, and that fans it and makes it grow and grow, and it becomes a cancer. That's why."

Gee, being that computer savy, I can't believe he's 77. Seriously. He doesn't sound a day over 75. No wonder his offense is so modern.

Ok, gotta run. Benny and I need to go back to cruising eBay for the latest college football info. After that, I think we're gonna hit Amazon.com then swing on over to MapQuest to see what they're saying about the USC/UCLA game.

If it weren't for Al Gore, Jeff Bowden would still be employed.

Someone shold tell Bobby that he can use Ebay to buy wider goal posts, dadgummit.

You know, FSU could have raised more than enough money for Jeff's buyout clause if they did eBay the rights to whether Jeff gets fired or not.
Without internet, I'd be getting in enough billable hours doing work instead of still stuck on that flashyourself site that the MSU girl link directed us yesterday.
