Rich: Those old sports guys
Placeholder Image
Not long ago, I watched a couple of documentaries on ESPN about the Southeastern Conference called, SEC: Storied. In the tradition of admirable Southern storytelling, this series chronicles a specific game, rivalry, or legendary SEC figures like Archie Manning and his sons. It so happened that both of the documentaries that I watched back-to-back included interviews with two sports writers I knew well and covered events with when I was a young sports writer reporting on SEC football and NASCAR. As I listened to Joe Biddle and Larry Woody, both sports writers from Nashville, my admiration for them reared up mightily again after many years forgotten.
