Black and White in Color Rick Reilly's column on race (THE LIFE OF REILLY, Feb. 4) was, in my opinion, exactly on point, and I'm black! Even if whites have a history of being more successful in many areas outside of sport, it's still not fair to stereotype white athletes. Reilly's article should make all people, particularly blacks, realize that if they don't like being stereotyped by race, then they shouldn't do it either.WILBERT E. BROWN, New Orleans

Memphis Menagerie
I couldn't have been more surprised after reading the article about Memphis basketball (Graced Land, Feb. 4). How often does an NBA team seem more likable than its college counterpart? Even if the Tigers are more popular, I still have more respect for Shane Battier and the rest of the Grizzlies, who play basketball as game and not as a circus.

Cloudy Crystal Ball
Talk about level playing fields. Dr. Z's preseason (Sept. 3) 23rd best team, the Patriots, won the Super Bowl (above, kicker Adam Vinatieri, number 4, and Ken Walter celebrate the decisive field goal) and his 29th (the Bears) won the NFC Central.
