Frank Deford marks it by talking sports and lefties:
Trust me, if you are a young parent and you want to give your son every advantage — spending a fortune sending him to all the right schools, and teaching him all sorts of cultural skills — just save your money.
Instead, tie his right arm behind his back as soon as he gets out of the crib and teach him to be a left-handed relief pitcher, and that kid of yours will still be making a good living pitching when you’re in assisted living — him paying your way. A left-handed reliever can go on forever.
Hmm…too bad this advice wasn’t a few years earlier.
