Screw the Primaries, We Can Settle This With a Simple Game of One-on-One

In the wake of former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan going down to an embarrassing defeat to Bill Simon, Jr. in the Republican primary for Governor, we have news of a political newcomer on the horizon. That's, right Magic Johnson may just be running for mayor of L.A. in 2005. Along with Charles Barkley's occasional musings about running for Governor of Alabama (as a Republican, no less), this could be the biggest sports-politics crossover since Jack Kemp became Buffalo's Man in Washington. No disrespect intended, of course, toward former Congressman and current Oklahoma gubernatorial candidate Steve Largent.
