I used to think I hated the sports section because I didn't care for sports. Now I realize it's the sports writers that don't care.
Sport is a magnificent field of human endeavor, in which ambition, discipline, and acuity erupt in always unprecedented bodily figures. So why is the writing on it an unpalatable mix of numbers analysis and empty management chatter? I might as well be reading about the Republican primaries.
Newspapers: please get some poets writing in your sports pages!
