I was a sports writer for some years before I came into the music business so
I must be in the minority here.

My best friend here in Oxford is Ace Atkins who writes mystery novels with
blues themes ("Dark End of the Street," etc.) and he was an all-SEC defensive
end on an undefeated Auburn football team.

One of my other screen names is NYYANKEE5 which honors the team and uniform
number of Joe DiMaggio.

If it was a World Series game with Roger Clemens and Kerry Wood as starting
pitchers on one channel and Magic Sam and Stevie Ray Vaughan back from the dead
on another channel, I'd tape the dead guys and stay with the ball game.
