On Tax Day, I'm reminded of that semester in law school when I took both Sports Law and Tax. By that point, I was already a CPA so Tax felt like a breeze. But Sports Law, not so much. I wasn't sure if a right guard played football or baseball and I'm pretty sure I was the only BC Law student to ever put my Tax homework on the back burner to cram for Sports Law. Pathetic.
Today, I am grateful ~
1/ for all I've learned since then
2/ including that a right guard plays football and does not, in fact, guard the right side of the baseball field as I reasoned
3/ but mostly, for all of those years of ignorant bliss, before I developed an allegiance to one team and came to understand the agony of being a fan.
