Having grown up a sportsman, my attention to sport, particularly when an adolescent and young adult, always has been exceptionally keen. When later, a penchant for aesthetics overtook my love of athletics, I was ready with a pen for that chronicle. Always having been a humanist, the human element has mattered to me at least as much, regarding sports, as the physical part of the matter. These essays cover a broad array of the sporting experience: from 1,000 mile long two-day rolling tailgate parties to out-of-town NHL playoff games; to an inside look at the tension and drama of a 1970s Louisiana high school swimming championship meet; to recollections of the beautiful buildings in which high level sports were played in New Orleans during my childhood; to a trip to an early sportscard collector's National Convention...moving ever farther out to encompass, and get to the story of what it is which sports DOES for man when the attachment is a healthy one. My intention is to exhilarate; that and to start the reader reminiscing in his own experiences. All is in the provision of a viable and interesting art -- one to which a reader will connect on a human level.
