I'm a bit loathe to jump in here, b/c it's such a tangent, really... I think your feeling that this highschool football guy got cheated is generous. & I like the idea that every kid needs a Mr. Miyagi, in theory anyway.
But I'm having trouble with the leap to Kasparov vs. Iverson -- isn't Gerry the exception here? I mean, I'm pretty confident that we can rattle off a dozen obscenely paid sports heroes for each geek made good, yes?
