Why not vote on sports, too?
Whose jersey should be in the rafters next? Who's the best player Patty Gasso's put on a diamond? Which sport lives to make itself irrelevant? What rules need changing? And that's just the start.
Though it’s a Wednesday post, in real time, fingers on the keyboard, it’s Tuesday.
I voted early.
For the right people.
Not the wrong people.
What would be the point of that?
Yet, it being election day, why stop there?
Why not cast some votes that belong on the sports page, not the front page, in races of interest and choice, because if you can’t have fun with a theme now, when can you?
A reminder, I’ve been covering and writing about sports since my junior year of college, 34 years ago.
Before I couldn’t take it anymore, I must have watched SportsCenter twice a day for 30 years. As a younger man, I’d read two, three or four newspapers a day if I could find them; read The National Sports Daily, cover to cover, when I could get my hands on it; in childhood, read every boxscore every day in every sport and collected baseball cards by the bushel, spending my 1970s allowance on Topps gum packs at Circle K.
I studied those cards, too.
So I must have some credibility, right?
