Sports like art and literature are a language (language is the lingua Franca of literature and language itself). It's fun to inhabit and arm yourself with vocabularies of citations. Uttering "Mahomes" hits the mark like one of the famed quarterback's passes. Did you know Madonna was still lipsyching when she performed "Borderline" at Danceteria? Or what George Foreman said about the ridiculous decision which gave the fight to an earnest young man named Shannon Briggs. Whistle that famous beginning to "The Tears of a Clown." Dah dah dah did  dah dah dah dah dah, oh yeah yeah yeah yeah, Oh if there's a smile.... ." Coubet's wantonly poised model in "The Creation of the World"--was not Whistler's mistress, Joanna Hiffernan, but Constance Quéniaux. Halil Şerif Pasha commissioned Courbet to paint her. And, of course, how happy you were about The Rangers game at The Garden and how upset about the Knicks. Why are Giant wins an SSRI and those Yanks!! Let's not leave out the market or Marcuse's "Repressive Desublimation." River Run...Old father old artificer stand me now and ever in good stead. "That's not a space! There's a hydrant." ...riverrun, past Eve and Adam's, from swerve offshore to bend of bay.
