Bloomberg: Holiday books

Nice mention of The Galloping Ghost on today's Bloomberg.com in a roundup of books to buy for the holidays. And I like what the writer, David M. Shribman--executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette--says about sports books:

Really good sports writing -- and no, that’s not an oxymoron, like “military music” -- is almost never about sports. It’s about bigger issues. Men and women play sports, and write about sports, as a way of understanding their broader challenges and struggles, the victories and the losses they create and suffer every day. Load up on these books over the holidays, but don’t for a minute think they’re about games.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
