The Sportsman of the Year question is answered in an issue that also covers pro football's denouement in the NFC West. Dan Jenkins reviews the college bowl games and wonders whether all those big favorites will really win, while Bil Gilbert, in an iconoclastic essay, pokes into some shadowed areas in the complex world of sport. Strictly for laughs is a collection of the year's funniest photographs, but Charles Goren's Christmas Bridge Quiz is both fun and instruction. Robert Cantwell and Frank Sleeper track down the angling odyssey of the preeminent American painter, Winslow Homer, and seven of the artist's watercolors are vividly and faithfully reproduced.
