The Art of Metaphor

January 30, 2015

If college basketball were an egg that teams were trying to crack, then Virginia would be an elaborate machine that uses a laser to cut the egg so precisely that its contents remain uncontaminated and the shell stays so intact that it could be shoved back up a hen’s butthole and then laid again. Kentucky, on the other hand, would be a sledgehammer. Somewhere, somebody’s got the manual that explains how to shut down Virginia’s machine. There is no way to turn off a sledgehammer. You just have to close your eyes, stick your chest out, and pray you survive the blow.
