Pinch Me

Your cover, by saying Kansas is having a Dream Season (So Far), suggests that a team only has a dream season if it wins it all. What kind of yardstick is that? The progress the Kansas football program has made in the past few years is nothing short of a dream come true for its loyal, patient fans.

Did you see Kansas' collapse against Missouri coming when you added "so far" to the cover? (They Got Game, Nov.�26). The last time you put one of our football teams on your cover (Nov. 17, 2003), the 9-0 Chiefs also lost the next week. Please don't put Kansas City-area football teams on the cover anymore!

Modest Man

Please allow me to point out, as game show hosts like me are wont to do, something that was wrong, or at least incomplete, in the way Chris Paul (Players, Nov.�26) described his appearance on our radio show, Wait, Wait . . . Don't Tell Me. He wasn't merely "hosting charity events" in Winston-Salem, N.C., as he said, when he came on our show. He was putting on the second annual Chris Paul Weekend, a three-day extravaganza of charity balls, community service events and basketball clinics. Chris is correctly described as the first professional athlete on our show, and I'm thinking that we should stop right there--so we can go on believing that all players are as charming, generous and decent as Chris Paul.
