    [narrator] It isn't.

    Oh, well, it's not like he's emailing every sports editor in the country and starting with an insult about their employment status [/crossthread]

    I’ve read through this a few times and I don’t find any instance in which Mr. McEnroe mentions a goat.

    Someone's doing wonders for his SEO backlinks today, I see.

    This isn't a feature. It's a Q&A. You want to do a feature, use these quotes to tell a good story. Coming up with boilerplate questions is easy.

    Gotta love those endorsement quotes by readers and the likes of Polamalu, Evert, Foreman, Williams and Mal Whitfield calling these Biofiles gold for young readers. Gets no better than that right there. To call the published interview of a pro athlete "gold" is worth more than just about any award.

    It's a feature. Don't bother to try to put creativity into your box. Dare to be creative.

    And people wonder why newspaper sports sections are dying. There is no creativity in there. With TV coverage and phone updates there's not much reason to read a paper. Newspapers need to come up with more creative unique content like this Biofile feature. Game cliches get mighty boring after a while.

    'They need advertisers too. Maybe you should buy an ad next time instead of using this forum for free?
