I had written a blistering e-mail about your lack of attention to the UConn Huskies women's basketball team's winning streak. Boy, am I glad I finished the magazine before I hit SEND! What a great article about Diana Taurasi (Driving Force, Jan. 20). What you didn't mention is that she is genuinely a good person, always has time for the fans and is a true leader of her team at the age of 20.

Kelley King lists the 2003 Heisman front-runners (INSIDE COLLEGE FOOTBALL, Jan. 20), but how in Hades could Georgia Tech's Tony Hollings not at least be included under "Also Keep an Eye On"? At the time of his 2002 season-ending injury—after four games—Hollings led the nation in rushing and was second in scoring.

Blind, Not Immobile
I am a blind person who subscribes to the talking book edition of SI. I enjoyed Rick Reilly's column about the blind Islanders fan who waited 30 years before attending a hockey game at Nassau Coliseum (THE LIFE OF REILLY, Dec. 30-Jan. 6). I am concerned, however, that many of your readers will conclude, wrongly, that blind people as a group are not able to attend sports events on a regular basis. While I tend to go with friends because I enjoy the group experience, I could, if I chose to, attend events by myself with no great difficulty. I am sure that neither Mr. Reilly nor SI want to inadvertently reinforce a negative stereotype about blind people that is all too pervasive.
