Several years ago, I mysteriously received a subscription to Sports Illustrated. Shortly thereafter, I received a subscription to Stuff, by Maxim, as well (my then military boyfriend, thought I was the greatest when he got three Stuffs and the Swimsuit Issue in a care package!) .
DT and I were watching the reporting about Rickey Henderson and I mentioned a sweet article I remembered. Turns out it wasn’t from the era that I had the free subscriptions but I’m glad I looked it up. It’s sweeter than ever.
In honor of Rickey Henderson’s Hall of Fame induction, is this illustration of his relationship with fans and more importantly, one special one. I wish there were more articles showing the humanity of the athletes; that is one thing sorely missing today.
