    An example that is clearly not a disease metaphor is the spread of baseball
    in children due to the need to recruit nine players per team.


    Oh yes, that would explain why the Orkney Ba' Game (100 players per side) is the world's most popular sport.

    Actually there may be something more like 250 players per team, and as you can see from one of the pictures, a Korean TV crew is covering the event. So what is then predicted? Rapid spread to Korea? The Pyongyang Ba' Game?
