The NCAA Must Now Be Willing To Allow Anyone Into Their Club

Simon Fraser University

Simon Fraser University

For the first time ever in the history of the human race and perhaps even the universe, a non-U.S. school has been granted membership into the exclusive and highfalutin’ organization that is the National Collegiate Athletic Association. And get this, it’s a goddamn Canadian school! What’s next for the NCAA? Going outside of the good old US of A and accepting the University of Alaska into the fold?

Fuckin’ NAFTA, man. Ross Perot tried to warn us, but we wouldn’t listen.

The Division II membership committee approved Simon Fraser’s application during a meeting at NCAA headquarters in Indianapolis. Simon Fraser has 19 teams that have been competing in the NAIA in the U.S. and Canadian Interuniversity Sport.

Well la-dee-freakin’-da, Simon Fraser University. Your students and faculty must be very proud. I do, however, have some issues I would like to address.

First of all, I didn’t even know they had colleges in Canada – that in itself is mind-blowing. Secondly, I didn’t even know that there was a school named after that guy from Encino Man. And finally, Canadians as a whole don’t like to be showy – instead, they like to keep to themselves and fit in. I assume SFU is not going to be looked upon too fondly at the next polar bear hunt/hockey tournament.
