SELF-QUARANTINE BOOK CLUB, Day 21 - Let’s close out this journey with a Harvard-Yale tie from 1968. Seriously? Yes. Good time to find out what Tommie Lee Jones (Harvard guard), Calvin Hill, Meryl Streep and BD from “Doonesbury” were up to!
RT @MatthewMihaleas: An @AroundtheHorn birthday for today. A panelist who worked for The Dallas Morning News for long years, nicknamed the “Top Cat,” was named one of the top 5 sports columnists in the nation, and is second all-time in ATH wins. Happy Birthday to the G.O.A.T. @TimCowlishaw! https://t.co/gDL50mHFbv
Thanks for the retweet. Should help your seed in my all-time DMN sportswriter bracket...
SELF-QUARANTINE BOOK CLUB, Day 20 — As much as has been written about the 2 Celtic greats, Pomerantz finds new ground as Cousy struggles with whether he could have provided better support to Russ in challenging times off the court. Pure basketball stuff is fun, too.
Down to 8...
SELF-QUARANTINE BOOK CLUB, Day 19 - Since I messed up and several of you have already mentioned this omission from my revised top 50 Sports Books list, here you go. Joe Rantz, you were the man. Great book that belongs on any list of anything.
Little Marco. Never been smaller.
Should definitely be on the list, my apologies. When I was making it, I never sat down and said “what rowing books should be on it?” My mistake. Recommend highly.
You, Blackie, Randy, Mitch and Blau on the cover. Strong lineup. I’m buried inside somewhere.
Cowboys Nation: How can you forget this 1985 loss to the Bears? By the way, it was one of my better game stories. When Dallas had the Final Four in 1986, the Dallas Morning News hosted a party and blew up some of our sports front pages. I took this one and never let go. https://t.co/5sJrUlWwr5
