I started writing sports at the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer in Georgia where my first assignment was dirt-track racing at East Alabama Motor Speeday. My favorite Winter Olympics came in Lillehammer where Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan provided drama but Dan Jansen provided tears and Johann Koss gave us faith in humanity. The Nagano Winter Olympics were also drama-filled when it appeared Michelle Kwan skated perfectly until Tara Lipinski skated even better. I've also covered all four tennis major tournaments, a Super Bowl, 10 Final Fours including Jim Valvano's miracle and saw my college coach Al McGuire win his only NCAA national championship. I've written about Tiger Woods and followed him around La Jolla once.
