Thank you to Steve Rushin for showing us that hockey will never have a place in our sports culture (Air and Space, Oct. 4). Move it to Canada where it is actually appreciated--and while we're at it, why don't we get rid of soccer too?
Brad Andrew Thornton, New York City
As an able-bodied 41-year-old nursing a muscle pull in my right shoulder, I opened SI to see the prostheses Ervin Kovacs leaves on the pool deck, Jeffrey Fabry holding an arrow in his teeth and Victor M�rquez cycling with his only leg. Great Leading Off (Oct. 4)! I don't care in what place any of them finished, they are first in my book.

Bob Martin captured the heroes of the 2004 Paralympic Games in stunning athletic glory, showing us the meaning of determination. The next time I try to talk myself out of jogging, I'll have the inspiration I need to lace up my running shoes and hit the streets.
Michael Lyle, Helotes, Texas
I'm glad that H.G. Bissinger finally made a trip back to Odessa, Texas (Return to Odessa, Oct. 4), to confront the living ghosts from his book Friday Night Lights. For so many high school football coaches and fans to despise Bissinger and the book the way they did, Bissinger must have gotten a whole lot of the story right. Writing the truth was painful to a lot of people, but because he did just that, he changed some attitudes about Texas high school football for the better.
