For his part, Plimpton always loved how the seventh definition of "finch" in his Oxford English Dictionary was "small lie." Intellectual humor just kills me.

I loved this story - this was one of the best things that SI ever did, very impish. Sidd Finch was on the 'roids, though.

A classic-I had forgotten all about it! Plimpton was a wonderful writer/journalist..
