    Chris Ballard wrote a piece in SI calling BS on things such as Red Sox nation, soccer fanatics and WNBA supporters.


    On what do you call BS?
    Here's mine: Covered a high school football championship game where the school's first-year principal had won a title as a prep quarterback 30 years earlier.
    Asked him how it compared, and he said winning as principal was better than winning as player.
    I call BS.

    Good idea, but ending the column with the BCS was too easy.

    I call BS on columnists who turn people who disagree with them into caricatures and strawmen.

    I'm calling BS on BS, because there's neither bull nor shit in it.

    Discuss among yourselves.

    I call bullshit on salon workers who feel like they have to tweeze your eyebrows after they wax them. That's what I pay you for bitch! So you don't have to put me through more pain!

    Back to your thread folks.

    I call BS on Brink's Home Security ads that portray upper-class suburbs as havens of menacing, rob-your-house-in-broad daylight-with-you-in-it burglers.

    Because, you know, home invasions are rampant among the Crate & Barrel set.

    What the hell is wrong with Thursday Night Football?

    I call b.s. that you enjoy football if you don't want to watch it on Thursday.
