57-Perron-3

I’ve been a fan of sports my entire life, and I know one thing to be absolutely, immutably true for virtually any game or event: when their guy does something illegal and gets away with it, it’s deplorable and possibly criminal and the referee should have his eyes examined, but when our guy does the exact same thing it’s veteran gamesmanship and gosh isn’t he a lovable rogue.
