Sixteen years ago today, I became the mother of a beautiful boy. And, what a boy he is! Talented, hilarious, intelligent, compassionate, egalitarian, wildly interesting, and endearingly eccentric, this young man plans on being a sports journalist, which is his all-consuming passion. Not just the stats, but the magic, meaning, and mythology of sports. Bob Costas? I pity the fool. Otis, My Man…Happy Birthday! I LOVE YOU!
