Not So Fast
Although it is unfortunate that Usain Bolt was not able to run in the 100-meter final at the world championships (INSIDE OLYMPICS, Sept. 5), I do not think the false start rule should be changed simply because it could result in disqualifying a performer like Bolt. The start in many sporting events is a calculated risk for all participants, which makes it exciting and part of the overall experience.

Is it by accident that your NFL Preview has a feature on Bolt? If I were an NFL team, I'd do whatever it took to add him to my roster. Then I'd send him deep on every play.

The Way We Were
Neil Leifer's photo of the Browns on the sideline during a game at the University of Pennsylvania (LEADING OFF, Sept. 5) definitely caught my attention. Not only because it captured the magnificence of Jim Brown in his prime, but also because it depicted the game in 1960. The sideline does not have cable wires, heated-cooled benches, assistants, agents and VIPs. Some fans are just standing around while others are watching action from the windows in Weightman Hall, behind the end zone at Franklin Field. Today's game is definitely entertaining, but I miss its simplicity.
