The sportsman of the Year is unveiled—and extolled by George Plimpton—in an issue that also celebrates our 20th anniversary and the last 20 years in sport, an era of unprecedented change and expansion. Ron Fimrite reviews the passing parade; a gallery of memorable photographs depicts the great moments, the dominant figures, the turning points; and Bill Johnson previews the shape of things to come between now and the year 2000. Highlights of our regular coverage include Dan Jenkins' review of the NFL season; John Underwood's analysis of the college bowl games; and Mark Mulvoy's portrait of the feisty Philadelphia Flyers.
