As a die-hard Red Sox fan, I loathe all things pinstripe. However, I can't help but respect a competitor like Jeter. In an age in which so many athletes suffer from narcissism and see themselves as larger than life, Jeter represents all that is right about baseball and remains one of the few true class acts in sports. It will be a pleasure to see him reach the 3,000-hit milestone.

Phil Taylor's tips for athletes (POINT AFTER, June 20) should be required summer reading for all NCAA competitors. As a Buckeyes fan I think Taylor's advice is definitely something Terrelle Pryor and his Ohio State teammates could have used a few years ago, when they began their college careers.
If there was ever an article in SI that actually made me laugh out loud, it was this one. Not only did Taylor give sound advice, but he also did so in a way that was both funny and intelligent.
