Pull the other one

When I got home this evening I watched the replay of the San Diego State Aztecs' 73-63 loss to New Mexico.

The game airs on an obscure cable network created to serve the cities/teams of the Mountain West Conference called "the mtn." Yes, the all-lowercase affectation is a little annoying.

The point: Color commentator Dave Bollwinkel said the following when describing the officiating crew: "This is another top-flight Mountain West crew."

Problem: There isn't one top flight officiating crew in the Mountain West, so it's logically impossible that the three blind mice officiating this game could be another one.

Supreme Court: “The Second Amendment is not a second class right. States can’t use subjective criteria when issuing carry permits.”
California: “But what if we added in illegal viewpoint discrimination, and violated the First Amendment at the same time?”
