48. Unfolding the Most Marvelous Game
Date: Nov. 2010
City: New York
In the wake of what was clearly a failed attempt to spit game comes a moment ripe for analysis. After reprimanding the dude in glasses for hitting on a female passenger, a bystander steps in to set the record straight. But what really happens is that he unwittingly lays his own problems bare. He's so worked up about how alone this girl is you can't help but notice how alone he is. He himself "ain't got no man." He himself is "going home from the city at three o'clock in the morning" by his own "goddamn self." And on top of that, he's crazy. Everybody else notices this, right?
