Every time I get the newspaper my first point of action is to read the headlines on the front page. The second is to throw out the sports page. My sports writer friends always get mad when I admit this fact, but the truth is i’m just not intersted in sports. I find the over-reliance on statistics and player history to be boring and unnecessary. But I know there are tons of people out there, both men and women, who find it fascinating.

Me, I prefer the feature stories on athletes, but even then they are often riddled with statistics and sports trivia that I know nothing about. Sometimes though there is a story that catches me off guard and I found one of those today. Read it here.
