By way of John Sickels, we have something from The New Republic. Now, now, calm down, this is still mostly a politics-free zone. This article has to do with Moneyball and the Army. Read the first few sentences, and tell me you aren't interested:
In the summer of 2008, Kansas City-based sportswriter Joe Posnanski was invited to discuss Moneyball at nearby Fort Leavenworth. At first, he was incredulous. "I had literally no idea what I was supposed to talk about," he told me. But Posnanski duly attended the seminar-style session, which featured several Army officers, including a colonel, at the facility's University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies.
Take note, people: The U.S. Army doesn't care if you look good in jeans.
