Why are there 18 holes in a round of golf?
Why not an even 20? Or even 15, the number of rounds heavyweight fights used to be?
The early golf courses were all over the map – five holes, seven, some 12-holers.
Then, the lads at St. Andrews got together and came up with the sanest solution.
A bottle of Scotch whiskey – say, a 12-year-old Glenlivet – holds enough for 18 shots.
One shot per hole and the bottle is empty. Why keep playing?
I think they should do the same with baseball, just make it two shot shots per inning.

In college, I did a dissertation on Soren Kiergaard. I just got back from Sweden, and I'm feeling his existential influence.
So you just returned from Sweden? That accounts for it, then.
