This is quite possibly the funniest thing I've read in weeks - Joe Buck and Troy Aikman get into an argument over the 12-men-on-the-field rule while calling the Superbowl. And yes, they drag philosophers into it. Money quote:
BUCK: Troy, I just don’t see how you get there. I mean, that’s a complete misreading of aphorism 88—it’s like when Vinny Testaverde tried to argue that there was something fascist in the work of John Stuart Mill. Wittgenstein’s whole point is that we do not need that degree of exactness in order to play a game properly.
