In homage to Super Bowl XLVII
I had at one point thought of writing a piece comparing the great popular authors of Baltimore (John Barth, Tom Clancy, Fitzgerald, Francis Scott Key, Menken, Poe, David Simon, Anne Tyler, etc.) with the great popular authors of San Francisco (Isabelle Allende, Allen Ginsberg, Dashiell Hammett, Jack Kerouac, Jack London, Amy Tan, Hunter S. Thompson, Mark Twain, etc.) and it could have been a great post, because Baltimore’s team name references Poe and San Francisco’s team name references American history and growth of the West.
But the hour is drawing nigh, so I’ll leave you instead with a pointer to a description of the game of American Football as a nerdy strategy game.
