    “how long has it been wrong?”

    to be introduced to sports at a young age is almost like a simultaneous introduction to the pillars of absurdist thought; you’re shown a world that is supposedly real yet distinctly divorced from your own, spectating aliens achieving feats of athleticism that ninety-nine percent of all humans will never be capable of with the regularity of a normal person’s bowel movements; physical anomalies—as far as an eight-year-old brain is concerned, gods—and you’re meant to believe…
