Mea culpa. Naught but a slip of the pen, so to speak, you have my assurances. I
play table tennis, not hockey. And often against highly talented and
intelligent women. (Yes, hitting the showers is the best part of the evening.)

As for understanding:

We set our intellectual and moral sights on ends higher than those possible for
the faculty of understanding. Reason is as blind to gender as she is to
culture, history and Canadian politics (esp. Canadian politics).
