Fact Instead Of Fiction: A True Report on the Denver Regional
If i understand the OP correctly, the match result was reported by Greg Hinze, who was captain of one of the teams but had sat out the match. No one told him what had happened, but he overhead the word "tie" being used more than once, so he reported an ...

Setting the record straight: the French pair did it
Thanks Magnus. I bear Borel a faint grudge for inspiring much more commentary on sigma algebras than I ever wanted to listen to, but I don't suppose he cares. I'd be interested to see the relevant parts of the 1940 and 1954 editions. I suggest that we add ...
