Some interesting observations and anecdotes from the long-time and well-known sportswriter, but this is something of a reflection of its times, as exemplified by what's now slightly embarrassing chapters on Negro (sic) athletes and Jim Thorpe. Rice seems to like to drop hints at how chummy he was with major sports figures, which does make you wonder how truly objective he was. ( )
