... kick me ...


A fabulous commentary ran this morning on NPR. If you're not a fan of FRANK DEFORD, you should be. This morning's piece, "Sweetness and Light" suggests that perhaps the Olympic Games have run their course in our contemporary, global experience ... it's a good read, but a better listen. CLICK HERE and give Deford's piece some consideration (at the very least, I learned that the Olympic torch was the brain child of Nazi Germany ... interesting, and makes it ~ as a symbol ~ lose just a bit of its mystique ... at least for this idealist.)

I love Frank Deford!!! Everything I know about the contemporary sports world, I learned from Frank. (I'm sure that doesn't surprise you.) :)

I, too, love Frank. Does he still do weekly essays on NPR? He used to on Thursday mornings and he made EVEN ME interested in sports. Funny, his picture looks much I the Frank in my imagination. Hope you're well!
