When in a race, do not pick up the golden apples

Today The Huffington Post publishes Thomas Moore's new blog entry, "Playing the Game of Life," in which Moore references Greek mythology, 18th century billiards, and classic texts. He writes about relationships between sports and everyday concerns:
"I conclude that sports are serious, in some ways more serious than work and government and finance. They are a fun dream of what life is all about. In them, whether as participants or spectators, we feel the emotions of failure and success, gain and loss, advantage and handicap (there's another golf word)."
