from barry:

hm - what *is* it about sports? one thing is that it has always been just about the only unscripted public performance. even reality tv is scripted in the tolstoyan sense (all unhappy people are numbingly alike). but in sports, you really don't know what's going to happen.

politics is so cursed by money that you can't really say it's as unpredictable as sports -- though the website that has people betting on the outcome of various elections has never lost an election. weird! pro basketball is, of course, cursed by money as well, but in the opposite direction.

by the way, this last championship resembles the way american elections can turn out: detroit outscored the spurs, but the spurs won. it's like winning the popular vote but not the election.

please note, though, that the spurs won outright.
