Yes, I'm a sports fan. And why not? Are diversions so wrong? It's not like I actually pay money to go see games or to watch them on television. I've enough of a conscience that I'm not going to give any of my money to line the pockets of the rapacious, dishonest, Uriah Heep-like owners or selfish, obnoxious players. But there is still something involving about sports, to me, and at their best they can provide unmatched drama. So...here are the sites I go to when I want information or commentary about sports.
Boston Globe Online /
Sports You can have your Chicago Sun-Times and your Washington
Posts and your L.A. Times. THERE IS NO BETTER SPORTS SECTION
IN THE NATION THAN THE BOSTON GLOBE. Got it?
CNN/SI - This Week's Issue It's not the entire issue of Sports Illustrated, but it's the meat of the issue - and it's free.
ESPN SportsZone ESPN on the Web. 'nuff said.
Chicago Sun Times Sports They are, truth be told, only a decent paper, but I like the writing of Rick Telander and Jay Mariotte.
The Sporting News An enjoyable enough magazine, with some good commentary.
