Summer Liebling iv: And you thought catamarans were degenerate

  One had only to be
  in Florida to wit-
  ness the decline of
  stealing second, af-
  ter Ty Cobb had set
  the standard by fly-
  ing in with sharpen-
  ed spikes. This is
  what passes for ath-
  letic intimidation

  And as for the blue
  muleta, is there a
  self-respecting bull
  who'd bother with it?
  O Barbary, o mores ..

A.J. Liebling
