    One of my personal faves ...

    The Tech men's basketball team made two points in the first quarter Tuesday night at State. The first was on a free throw by Johnny Smith. The second was the Techies were not going to beat the Statesmen.

    I wouldn't say the 1966 lead was a "light moment" at all. I imagine - barely 20 years after World War II ended - that the sentiment was gravely serious.

    Jim Murray in September 1963, when the Cards were cutting into the Dodgers' lead. "Before the season began, I wrote the Dodgers had to players to burn. If they blow this, it'll be too good for 'em."

    A sentence in the story, wrapping up a paragraph: "Leafless, branchless, barkless, they are reduced to their trunks and worn to a smooth silver-gray, as if they had always carried their own tombstones inside them."

    That's writing.

    That's a fabulous article. It was when I first read it, and it remains so.

    Woody Plaige, in January 1997 after the Broncos gagged at home in the divisional round against the Jaguars.

    What do the Pope, Billy Graham and the 1996 Broncos have in common?

    They got 76,000 people at Mile High Stadium to stand up and shout, "Jesus Christ!"

    Nice waste of police resources. Go after the child molesters instead, not the repressed homosexuals who hide behind the cloth. Policing prostitution is just pointless and stupid IMHO.

    Still, a very meaty lede.

    Not, it's not. Sex trafficking is a huge problem.

    Watch this if you get a chance: Sex Trafficking in America

    Fair enough. I wasn't giving it the consideration it deserves in how it contributes to sex trafficking.
