Arete, Sport and Society, American Sport History
Over the past few months, I have written this column only a few times, the last being late July. This has not been because I have had nothing to comment upon. Rather the summer has been filled with travel, some to escape the heat of Florida. Over the past few days, I have been trying to decide how to restart. Many topics have shot by over the past three months, any number of which could now be subjects for this column. Not the least of these are the passing of two giants of contemporary American sport: Bill Russell in basketball and Vince Scully in baseball. Both left indelible marks on the world of sport and beyond. Both were men of principle and character. Either of them could be the subject of many of these columns.
