We offer for your perusal two interesting sports links that have crossed our path recently.
The first link [here] is from a Cincinnati reader. It is a Samuel Beckett-ized interpretation of Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings quarterback situation. It stars Sage Rosenfels and Tavaris Jackson as Estragon and Vladimir. It is such a creative idea and well-executed.
The second link [here] is a short New York Times video of their sports columnist, William C. Rhoden, discussing the natures of jazz and basketball with trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis. They muse on similarities and evolutions among other things in fascinating conversation (pathetically staged on a basketball court).
