So if any of you know me you know I know nothing about baseball and the only other sport I know that has curve balls is ping pong.
It is interesting because if you play often then you realize that trajectory and force and angle will make the ball land on a certain spot of the table. You then expect the ball to follow a regular course after that. If you spin the ball however then when it hits it doesn't follow the expected trajectory and the results can be rather entertaining. Life is like that.
