Delaware (A Brief Post--What Else Would You Expect?)
Have you noticed that an inordinate number of geographical locations are "approximately the size of Delaware"? What does that mean to anybody? Do people from Delaware even know approximately how big Delaware is? What do newspaper writers in other parts of the world use as a point of comparison for relative areas? "Senator Joe Biden, the Vice President of the United States," a reporter in The Eritrea Pennysaver might write, "hails from Delaware, a state approximately one-third the size of Djibouti."
You can look it up!
Of course, there are certain competitive activities that don't readily lend themselves to a "Rocky"-type storyline. . . . Bagpiping, for instance.
