05/21/2004: Thought for the Day:
You've heard that old chestnut applied to baseball a thousand times: it's not a sprint, it's a marathon. But I don't think the metaphor is quite right, for a marathon implies slow, steady, inexorable progress toward a goal. And baseball is filled with stalls, stutters, speedbumps, and sudden stops. It's less like a marathon and more like a car chase in the middle of a traffic jam.
