I couldn't agree more with Steve Rushin that we have entered an era of sports blandness (AIR AND SPACE, Feb. 9). Last spring I was writhing as my 10-, eight-and five-year-old sons watched their favorite hockey team win the Stanley Cup. Recently I was cringing as their favorite football team won the Super Bowl. I can only hope the boring selflessness, teamwork and sportsmanship these teams displayed don't scar my boys too deeply. Next thing you know they'll forget to taunt their opponent when they score the lone goal in a 10-1 losing effort. Maybe a Warren Sapp jersey would help straighten them out.

I finally realized where Mr. Rushin's AIR AND SPACE is located.
