Ring fingers and sports potential

All that stuff written about early
admission college programs being discriminatory
, here’s a
new wrinkle
on possible “early admission” to sports programs. It seem that girls or women whose ring
fingers are longer than their index fingers are much more likely to be good in

The new report said that measuring early on the ratio of
those fingers “could help identify talented individuals at a
pre-competitive stage.”

Just think — new tests for junior high sports teams. It’s not how well you play the game; it’s
whether your finger ratios fill the bill.

As a shortie, I know I hung from door jambs hoping to
stretch enough to make the 9th grade basketball team. Now you’re likely to find girls pulling on
their ring fingers to make the sports cut.

Life’s not fair. Maybe I’ll find a way to file a discrimination suit.
