Turns out that SEC football, particularly LSU's brand, isn't just popular in the United States. That billboard pictured above that wants you to know who's number one can be found in Afghanistan.

Now, odds are the message was spray-painted on the billboard by an American soldier currently in Afghanistan, but I'm going to pretend that it was done by an 11-year old child in the country who has never seen a single college football game in his life. It's just that the magic of Les Miles is so great that it transcends all borders, religion, and politics.

Oh, and the 11-year old kid that I like to pretend spray-painted it? Yeah, he's a Harris Poll voter too. They let everybody vote in that thing.

Afghanistan has been conquered many times. The Persians, Mauryan Empire, Parthian Empire, Timurid, Mughal Empires, Macedonians(who sold it for 500 elephants) to just name a few. Besides Russia and Britain, most nation succesfully conquered Afghanistan.

I wouldd insist you pick up a history book. Besides Russia and Britain(who lost 1 war and came out in a wash in the other 2) Afghanistan has been conquered many times. The Persians, Mauryan Empire, Parthian Empire, Timurid and Mughal Empires, and the Macedonians(who sold it for 500 elephants) to just name a few.

Come on CBS....you can do better than that!  The Eastern bias is fueled by you and ESPN (Eastern Sports Network).

We shouldn't be in Afghanistan in the 1st place! Nobody, and I mean nobody has ever won a war in that place.
