Which Sport?

Glynn: Your fascinating account of the struggle between The Possibles and The Probables leaves this ignorant American puzzled as to the sport involved. I’m assuming it’s not cricket, since I can’t imagine one would “come out fighting” in that gentile battle. And perhaps not tennis, since that requires fewer players. Perhaps rugby? Here in America, we have National Anthem at the start of every baseball contest, but there is no holding of hands. And, given the martial nature of our Anthem and the current political complexities of our place in the world, the song carries a bit of extra baggage right now whereever one stands on the underlying geopolitical questions.
