Jeb Bush

On Wednesday night, while most sports fans watched the World Series or any of the 14 NBA games, the GOP presidential candidates waged a debate. Jeb Bush was asked a question about daily fantasy sports, but he diverted the conversation to his standard fantasy football team.

"First of all, I'm 7-0 in my fantasy football league," Bush said. "[Rob] Gronkowski is still going strong. I have Ryan Tannehill, Marco [Rubio], as my quarterback. He was 18-for-19 last week, so I'm doing great, but we're not gambling. And I think this has become something that has to be looked at in terms of regulation."

Bush explains how he thinks daily fantasy sports is a mess and employees of FanDuel and DraftKings are using insider information as an advantage. He wavers on whether or not the federal government should get involved or leave the problem for the NFL. Bush uses the words "regulate" or "regulation" five times in roughly 35 seconds.

Bush mention of names like Gronkowski and Tannehill could be read as an attempt to connect with America. What he misses is that bragging about fantasy football frustrates 90 percent of Americans.

Just ask Chris Christie.

"Are we really talking about getting the government involved in fantasy football?" Christie asks. "We have $19 trillion in debt, we have people out of work, we have ISIS and Al Qaeda attacking us, and we’re talking about fantasy football?"

Chris Christie's like, "I got a ring."

Or maybe he's just frustrated to have Dez Bryant on his fantasy football roster.

Also, Christie is dodging football questions when he has celebrated a Lombardi Trophy with the Giants and sat in Jerry Jones' Cowboys box. Can the candidates talk about that at the next debate?
