Subject:        Shakespeare Shocks the World

Sports Illustrated, April 1 2002

Steve Rushin's Air and Space weekly article, page 13:

While discussing how athletes who pull an upset in sports continually
claim to have "shocked the world", and noting how weak that claim is
especially in light of September, Rushin makes this point:

"Time was when only the most hubristic man could hope to impress the
whole human race. 'Come the three corners of the world in arms, and we
shall shock them,' the Bastard boasted in Shakespeare's King John".

A quote from KING JOHN(!) in a sports magazine? Now I've seen
everything...
