To continue my thought from yesterday, I think that I enjoy sports more when they are not just a clash of two opponents, but a clash of competing philosophies. As my friend, the Sheriff, said four years ago, “Certainly, that’s something else the NCAA has over the NFL. The varied offenses provide a lot of entertainment. There’s so little difference in the pro game that a game between two random teams carries a lot less interest to me.”
I guess that’s why baseball during the 1980s might have been better than it has been through most of it’s history; what with The Saint Louis Cardinals practicing Whiteyball versus Harvey’s Wallbangers in the’82 World Series.
