My bus and bar book for the week is Phillip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle. It contains a Japanese poem by Yosa Buson, one that presciently describes today' AFC and NFC championship contests:
As the spring rains fall, soaking in them, on the roof, is a child's rag ball.
I am still trying to decipher its meaning(s).
If my beloved New England Patriots lose I will eat a dinner in honor of their struggle.
Denver is it. Now we wait for the other half of the equation.
