I'll second that! Nice.

Actually Michael, your article encouraged me to delve a bit further and am just reading this essay I found through Google Scholar. The last paragraph I found interesting:

"The study of play and games is not a trivial pursuit. What we play is a reflection of what we are and what we will be. The decisions we make about sports, in a desire to have them as what Huizinga called “a sound culture producing force,” deserve the clearest scrutiny, in the full light of history."
