Sham, Alydar, Joe Frazier, Andy Roddick, Orly Lobel's Harvard Law Review article. What do they have in common? All deserved to be Number 1, but were just born at the wrong time. So as Secretariat was to Sham, Affirmed to Alydar, Ali to Frazier, and Federer to Roddick, so are Balkin & Levinson to Lobel. A great paper, and despite its placement in the HLR, doomed never to hit the top of the SSRN charts, simply because it was born at the wrong time.
But there are no losers here - it's an honor just to be able to play the game!
