I know, I know. But when you're talking about sports writing, you can't forget about the quotables the great Yogi Berra has given us.
But seriously, Tom's presentation was great in that it gave a most concise presentation of how to write a sports story. I have seen lots of how-to's, but not as succinct as this one. I will forever be in debt for the news in descending order tip and the basics of what info to include. I have sometimes shied away from focusing on sports writing for two reasons. One, we print monthly and timeliness is an issue. Two, I was never really sure what to include in the story. So, now I know! Thanks, Tom. One final thought from Berra, just for us in Phoenix: "It ain't the heat, it's the humility."
