The Vain Pursuit of Perfection

Check out my latest: The Partial Observer - The Vain Pursuit of Perfection

Excerpt:
We have seen other great achievements from the 1970's or 60's that have yet to
be duplicated. No male tennis player has won the Grand Slam since Rod Laver did
it twice in the 1960's. No team has won the NFL championship three years in a
row since the Packers in the 1960's. No NFL team has had a perfect record before
or since the 1972 Miami Dolphins. Tiger Woods may be in decline, and still needs
five Majors to eclipse Jack Nicklaus. A few of John Wooden's UCLA basketball
teams went undefeated, and Bobby Knight's Indiana team duplicated the feat in
1976, but no one has done it since.These long-ago achievements loom large. It's
almost too much to ask for anyone to reach them.
