--Matt


A: We have about a dozen well-worn copies of Paul Fussell's brilliant book Class lying around the office. One its greatest contributions: a sport's class is inversely proportional to the size of its ball.*

How's your backhand?

(* Of course not every theory is perfect. If it were, a softball would be about the size of the moon.)
