No double-dribbles here

Count me among those snickering at the National Basketball Association after reading that the league will reverse its decision and return to the good, old-fashion leather basketball.

Can you imagine the powers that be at the National Hockey League ever changing the dimensions of a puck from its current standard (black vulcanized rubber, one inch thick and three inches round, weighing between 5.5 to 6 ounces)?

Hockey may not be perfect (for instance, unbalanced scheduling and inconsistent officiating), but at least it doesn't mess with the basics.
