The 7 Signs of The Apocalypse - In Sports

Either the Apocalypse is upon us or this is the 13th year of our Bizarro world in sports. See the evidence of such hyperbole below:

7 - Texas A&M's basketball team is better than the football team and has been for some time now. Does this make us a basketball school? Not yet, but growing fast.

6 - The Dallas Cowboys, who many predicted would be the first team to play in the Super Bowl in their home stadium, is stinking it up and is in last place in the division.

5 - The longhorns lost to Iowa State. Did I mention it was at home for the second home loss of the season?

4 - This summer more Americans paid attention to the World Cup than ever before. That is soccer, for those of you who don't care about games which feature the rule that you can't touch a ball with your hands.

3 - Michigan State, Missouri, and South Carolina are in first place in their respective conferences.

2 - Baylor is leading the Big12 South in football. The South has A&M, OU, UT ("tu" for us Aggies), OSU, and Tech.
Baylor? Seriously?

1 - The Texas Rangers beat the Yankees and are in the World Series!

The world has gone mad I tell you!!!

Am I missing anything here?

The New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl last year (or this calendar year). I tell you... THIS is where it all began! ;)
