The sport of choice for the urban poor is basketball. The sport of choice for maintenance level employees is bowling. The sport of choice for front-line workers is football. The sport of choice for supervisors is baseball. The sport of choice for middle management is tennis. The sport of choice for corporate officers is golf. Conclusion: The higher you are in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become.
Golf balls are attracted to water as unerringly as the eye of a middle-aged man to a female bosom.
~Michael Green, The Art of Coarse Golf, 1967
