U.S. light heavyweight boxer Evander Holyfield epitomizes the true spirit of sport. He was graceful in victory, concerned about the defeated and even more graceful in an unjust disqualification. I admire Holyfield and hope other athletes heed his example.
Hey, SI, we love ya! William Taaffe's article on "baseball's lovable shnook," Bob Uecker (TV/RADIO, Sept. 3), was an unexpected fix for us Uecker junkies, but you showed the wrong baseball card. In 1965, Uecker, a career righthanded batter, displayed his wry sense of humor by posing for Topps batting lefty. And in a true show of mediocrity, nobody noticed!

I'm disappointed that the world's greatest sports magazine devoted only one page to Bob Uecker. You should have given him at least six. Just the mention of his name gets me laughing. The Miller Brewing Company will never have to worry about VCR owners fast-forwarding past Uecker's Lite Beer commercials. I'd rather watch "Alone in the Cheap Seats" than Three's Company any day!
