Let's compare Rich Rod canceling practice vs. Oprah giving away a new car

Remember Oprah, kids? She was the host of the daytime talk show your mom was watching when you got home from school every day. One time, in 2004, she gave away new cars for everyone in her audience. People, understandably, went nuts.

Now, let's compare that collective reaction with that of Arizona football players after Rich Rodriguez canceled practice on Friday.

Again, one group received a free car, and the other got out of an hour and a half of football practice.

Who was happier for their bit of good fortune? I dare say it was the Arizona football players.
