At the risk of agreeing with Teddy Kennedy, I think the federal government has better things to do than to launch full scale hearings into the New England Patriots "spygate" scandal. And it's not because I'm a Pats fan. Pats head coach Bill Belichik was fined $250,000 and the team $50,000 and also lost a first round draft pick for stealing signs from opposing teams. What does Arlen Specter think the federal government can do concerning this matter that the NFL hasn't already? Could it be that Specter is still sore after the Pats beat the Philadelphia Eagles in Superbowl XXXIX? Who knows but maybe he had a wager on that game. Whatever the case Congress should involve itself in this no more than it should have involved itself in what was injected into Roger Clemens' buttocks. But it's easy to see why they do it. They get to see themselves on TV.
