Since the World Series, I've been reading a lot of espn.com at lunch, digesting and, let's face it, reliving the Sox win a bit. The Sports Guy has a really nice piece about watching the end of the series with his daughter.
I also discovered that Chuck Klosterman writes a monthly column for ESPN. Who knew? I particularly enjoyed this one about the NBA; Klosterman is a good writer.
That column made me think of an interesting question: We regard college basketball as a "purer" version of the sport than the NBA. College football and the NFL are a bit of a wash. Both are popular, but seem almost like different sports. But it's professional baseball we regard as the true strain of that sport, with almost no regard for college ball at all. Why is that?
