Episode #22: This Too Shall Pass, with Mark Hendrickson and Dana Burgess

January 22, 2015 · 38:34

John explores the saying, “This too shall pass,” and wonders if it helps sports fans, like himself, ignore cheating (*COUGH* newenglandpatriots *COUGH*), the systematic maiming of players, and the bending of rules (like the Jordan Rules, which maybe have another name now?).  Mark Hendrickson tells us what it’s like to be a 6’9” left-handed baseball player, and Whitman College professor Dana Burgess likens Tiger Woods to Heracles (Hercules, for everyone that is not a classics professor) for having a big appetite.
