So, today in class, my professor mentioned going to Budapest a few years back for a conference on sports literature (anecdotal; he was using it to discuss the emphasis the British and Irish place on class distinction for our discussion on Michael Longley). I followed up with him on it after class, and he showed me a variety of baseball books and other things he had tucked away on his shelves. Then, expecting a funny look, I said, "I love baseball, but my real passion has always been hockey." What I get instead of a funny face is a professor rummaging through one of his shelves and pulling out a book entitled The Hockey Player Sonnets.

I love our English department.
