    That was terrific until the kicker. The last line left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Having said that, I think it could be a contender for APSE's gamer of the year if entered.

    He's real good and always was. Early in our careers, we covered high schools on really small dailies in neighboring counties that overlapped in some towns, so I would see him at games from time to time. I was not at the stage yet that I was trying to predict the careers of anyone, including myself, but all I knew was he worked hard and was very professional. The next (and last) time I saw him was at a Super Bowl media party -- he was at Hartford and I was at a paper in the host city. It's been a pleasure to watch his progress. He had a stop at another local daily before he moved on up to Hartford -- paying his dues the old-fashioned way and making the most of his chances.

    That was solid, but I thought L.John Wertheim's recap in the hard-copy of SI this week was several notches better. Anyone else?


    (I have no allegiance to either writer, either)

    First off, either-writer-either is fun to say.

    Second, ditto on the close. A little too, "everyone's a winner." Still, for the rest of the piece, I wouldn't enjoy putting something I wrote next to it.
