• TEE TIME: The other rulebook

    Every sport has its unwritten rules.

    In baseball, if a batter hits a home run and calls attention to himself while making his way around the bases, he’ll probably have a ball thrown at his head on his next trip to the plate.

    In basketball, if a player begins to showboat too much, chances are that if he goes in for an open layup, he could end up in the third row of the stands when an opposing player takes him out.

    Golf, too, has unwritten rules, but none that are so violent.
