You're absolutely right, Kenny. Everyone is entitled to their
opinions about Jim's opinions. By the same token, everyone is
entitled to their opinions about everyone's opinions about Jim's
opinions, and so on.
As for whether or not Jim chooses to strap on the cesta, that's totally up to him. If he does, he'll surely see things from a new perspective. If he doesn't decide to play, though, it doesn't mean that he doesn't love the game, or that he knows nothing about it.
