It's the Pits
Rick Reilly's column about working on a NASCAR pit crew (LIFE OF REILLY, Nov. 21) finds some humor in the NASCAR preacher's invocation, "God bless our sponsors, without whom we couldn't be here today." It sounds to me like an appropriate sentiment for a magazine that accepts advertising.
Making a Comeback
You cannot imagine how thrilled I was when I opened the mailbox earlier this week and found SPORTS ILUSTRATED. I hadn't received SI since Hurricane Katrina forced my family to flee our home in Gretna, La. I'm amazed you found me even though I haven't been able to send in a change of address. It's been a rough few months, but my being able to read Steve Rushin, Rick Reilly and all the other SI writers signifies that my life is getting back to normal.
I can't thank you enough for the wonderful article on UConn's Rudy Gay (A Need to Get Mean, Nov. 21). I had the pleasure of being Rudy's guidance counselor at Archbishop Spalding ( Severn, Md.), and I can assure you he is every bit the fine young man portrayed by Seth Davis. In his entire time here I never heard a student or faculty member say any but positive things about him, rare for a star athlete in a competitive high school milieu. It is a pleasure to see you feature someone who is worthy of being an example to follow.
