Sports are not what you’d call a bohemian pastime. Athletes follow rules, beatniks scorn them. Sports speak to the crowd, art to the individual. Sports fans are fanatics, art lovers are blasé. Fans are followers, artists intrepid explorers. Jocks are dumb brutes with uncanny skills, while artists are . . .  whatever, you get the idea.
