Filling in for Lattimer, I understand; less is more. So rather than attempt that loftiest of feats and try to mimic or match his natural verbal grace, I'll just put it out there and depend on you, the eager mind, to fill the void.
But a little background is necessary.
Last night, I started watching this thing on the Discovery Channel called 'Cronkite Remembers.' In what appeared to be just another old man rambling about the way things used to be in vain senility, it turned out to be him talking about all the events that made him famous, most interestingly the Nuremberg Trials, least interestingly this argument he and his daughter got into.
By the time I stopped wanting to watch, it was about two in the morning.
But it got me thinking. And subsequently, this shit storm will be as thus:
Greatest Sporting Acheivement of the 20th century.
That's 1900 (Remember Army vs. Navy?!) to 2000 (Remember Jr. High?!). Have at it, flunkies.
