I have something like a dozen posts backed up, mostly completed mentally but with no words on a screen. They're starting to run into each other.
Bill Simmons over at ESPN.com had an article about baseball playoff myths. #1 was that experience counts during the playoffs. This strikes me as an impression created by narrative. We know the experienced player and attribute more of the good things that happen to that player's actions. Example: Fading Star and Backup Infielder both get hits in the 9th inning, leading to a game-winning run. It doesn't matter which one hits before the other, or which one hits the double and which the single. The fan will remember Fading Star's hit as the key one. Forever. This will falsely reinforce his idea that experience is important in playoffs.
Repeat as desired. Make cliched pronouncements at work about this until retirement. Then switch to sports call-in shows.
