The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence is calling for a full investigation of the Sporting News for their prediction of the Chicago Cubs to win the 2015 World Series.
The Committee’s Vice Chairman, Georgia Republican Saxby Chambliss, told Politico.com that its role is to oversee and make continuing studies of intelligence activities in the United States.
“It’s quite obvious that the Sporting News isn’t intelligent for picking the Cubs to win it all,” Chambliss said. “Luis Valbuena at third base, a bullpen that’s shakier than a Derrick Rose jump shot, and the windmill known as Javier Baez?”
“You’re damn right there’s gonna be an investigation.”
Chambliss said the committee is considering looking into other Sporting News picks, such as Illinois playing Kansas in next year’s College Football Playoff Championship, Dayan Viciedo as American League MVP, and the Bears versus Jacksonville in Super Bowl 2016.
