Bottom Ten: Here's a Place Where We All Can Laugh at Defeat

October 05, 1985

Why doesn't R. H. Caldwell (Viewpoint, Sept. 28) read between the lines in Steve Harvey's Bottom Ten? After spending some time learning from Harvey, I realized he is poking fun, not at the athletes, but at the importance we place on winning.

The "Cardinal Sin" of athletics is not cheating, but losing. With his offbeat sense of humor, Harvey helps us laugh at defeats instead of crying over them. When sports are getting so serious with drug trials and recruiting violations, it's great to have someone like Harvey that writes what happens in a light-hearted manner.

Here's one vote for the Bottom Ten, and I'm not alone, either.
