“Even the squirrels shoot threes”

I’m giving a talk today in Kentucky, titled “Trash the System or Crash the Planet” (on capitalism and the environment).

I suspect, however, that the only rivalry people will be thinking about will be taking place tomorrow on Bourbon Street.*

* Don’t believe me? Here’s J. D. Crowe explaining things to Alabamans:

In Kentucky, basketball is at least as big as football in Alabama. I’d argue it’s bigger. I drive around Alabama and see very few homemade goal posts in pastures. Take a drive down any country road or city street in Kentucky and you’ll see a basketball goal on every barn, in every driveway, and on trees. In Kentucky even the squirrels shoot threes.
