You grew up reading "Sports of the Times"

Hell, your granddad grew up reading it.

Abner Doubleday got the idea for baseball from one of the columns.


From Murray Chass himself...

"This is a column about a column. Put another way, this is a eulogy for a column that is dying after 82 years. It is the Sports of the Times column of The New York Times. The Times seems intent on killing the column before the newspaper itself dies. It’s like parents, knowing they are going to die, killing their children because they won’t be able to live on without them."
