I think it's kind of nice that we have so many champions.
For comparison, look at the chess world. At any given time
there may be a couple of dozen astoundingly good chess players,
any of whom, on a good day, could win a game (though not
all the games) against the champ. But they get no respect.
We, on the other hand, give respect to 10 or more
astoundingly good pilots.
