Politics is boring again today, so how about a couple of topics about the culture? (Don’t worry: everything is still lifted from Hot Air, as usual.) First: should women take their husbands’ names? A piece by Mollie Hemingway argues, among other things: How is using the name your father and his patriarchal privilege forced on you somehow less oppressive than taking the name of the man you chose to be your husband and the father of your children? I told Mrs. P. it didn’t matter to me whether she kept her name or not; I was used to her the way I met her, and part of me didn’t want to change that. But she changed her name so there would be less confusion when we had kids. It was the right choice for us. Second: should the NFL eliminate extra point kicks after touchdowns? The NFL commissioner says maybe: “You want to add excitement with every play,” Goodell said. “So there have been some proposals. Some are still going through the process of creativity, but there’s one proposal in particular that I’ve heard about (where) it’s automatic that you get seven points when you score a touchdown, but you could potentially go for an eighth point, either by running or passing the ball. But if you fail, you’d go back to six.” Allahpundit notes that this would barely be different from what we already have, and proposes a more interesting idea: If you want to liven up the PAT [point after touchdown], there’s an obvious solution: Move it way, way back. TDs would remain six points but afterward coaches would have a choice. Either go for two from the two-yard line or try a 45-yard kick for the extra point. If your goal is more excitement then you should be increasing the incentive for teams to try two-point conversions by decreasing the incentive for them to kick instead — and if they do kick, you want some real suspense in whether they’ll make it. I’d be all for it, but I realize that the first time a team loses by a point because their kicker missed the PAT by six feet, their fans would be screaming bloody murder and demanding the return of the chip-shot PAT. That’s why we can’t have nice things, America. My solution would be: don’t mess with football. Sometimes the best solution is to leave it be. What say you? P.S. I realize the topics are not particularly related. If you want related topics in a single post, I’m gonna have to demand a raise.
