Perfect. (Or, not.)

Marvin Heiferman’s mini-essay puts things into perspective a little bit:

(I suppose I could find out for myself [perhaps by familiarizing myself with the rules] why, when soccer games end 0-0, one team advances in the tournament and another might be eliminated.) I (and, I daresay, we) have enough on our plate (I’ll let that potential pun slide — that one as well) with the baseball rule book. I just like Mr. Heiferman’s conclusion.
