[O.C.T.O.B.E.R. VI-7] If only X were different…

What ifs often seem to say “If only X happened, then…”

And it often appears in sports. If only that one play happened, we would have won!

But if one thing in the past changes, then everything from that point is liable to also change.

For example, if Northwestern had put points on the board after stopping Penn State at the game’s start today, or if the interception had not been nullified by a foil, would the outcome, or at least the flow, of the game had changed?

Probably not, but sports events can sometimes turn on a dime.
