An Ode to the Newspaper Sports Section As It Gasps for Air

From a Washington Post column by Barry Svrluga headlined “An ode to the newspaper sports section, as it gasps for air”:

If it seems odd for a sports columnist at one major metropolitan newspaper to lament the shuttering of the sports section at another major metropolitan newspaper, that’s because it is. But as the New York Times sports page and sports staff enter their final days as we knew them, it feels right to acknowledge what is lost for all of us. The great American newspaper sports section might not be dead. But it’s unhealthy, and who knows the cure?
