What do you do when the equipment and tools you play with have changed so much as to effect the sport? What about the players - larger, stronger, faster? Do you change the rules or regulations of the game, or find other ways to mitigate the things which otherwise alter how the game is practically played?

Looking at hockey, basketball, and baseball, and led by an article by hockey goalie Ken Dryden, in this episode we talk about the fascinating world of how and why something as timeless seeming as sports changes in ways we may not always expect.
