Well said. Howard’s point applies to good storytelling in all of it’s forms.

I found this clip in a Grantland article that uses Joseph Campbell’s comparative mythology work on the Hero’s Journey as a template for redesigning the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.  Not sure I’ve ever seen a blog post that melds two things this unrelated into such an interesting and useful commentary.
