Recently I’ve been reading the series of The Best American Sports Writing, which is an absolute must for anyone that likes good stories. Or sports. Or both.
I came across this story in its pages and, while it’s long, it is 100 percent worth your time because it takes you inside the halls of the NCAA to expose the wrongs done to “student-athletes” in the name of education.
Here is “The Shame of College Athletics” by Taylor Branch.
Sam Fortier usually doesn’t copout of a post like that. He’ll do better next week. He is a displaced New Englander living in New York. He likes baseball, crunchy peanut butter and the sound Kanye makes in his songs, which he thinks is spelled “HAAH.” He’s not a fan of grammatical error’s. You can read him here every Monday, follow him on Twitter @Sam4TR, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
