There's a Basketball Analogy for Everything

I barely go a week without saying something to my wife like: "You know, that's just like the NBA..." then I rattle off some theory about how making a good dinner is like building a championship contender, or being a good parent is like being a good coach, or some stock market investments are like shooting from the outside while others are like feeding the post.

These analogies are limitless. I have a new one almost every day, without even trying.

Praise be to Jason Kottke, for bringing up a way in which group e-mails are like offensive possessions.
