The Daily's Hot Reads For Tuesday: Metaphors We Live By

ESPN.com's Jeff MacGregor writes the "question of how to be an American is no longer asked across the kitchen table" but is "dealt with more effectively in the Super Bowl media center and the boardrooms above Madison Avenue. While you weren't looking, the NFL became our national metaphor for everything" (ESPN.com).

YAHOO SPORTS' Ryan Lambert writes when it comes to brain safety, the NFL is "at least getting some wheels in motion on the matter." That "only scores to underscore how the little the [NHL] is doing with regard to the rash of head injuries now being suffered league-wide, and to change the culture surrounding it" (SPORTS.YAHOO.com).

CBSSPORTS.com's Dennis Dodd writes, "As a powerful tax-exempt, non-profit organization that that furthers the education mission through athletics, the current perception is that the NCAA does little more than put on a heck of a basketball tournament" (CBSSPORTS.com). Also, a closer look at the racket that is "academic counseling" (N.Y. TIMES).

The OREGONIAN's Steve Duin notes Steve Kelley, who retired from the Seattle Times last week, left the Portland paper more than 30 years ago. Duin: "But in the evolution and education of the Portland sports fans, I'd argue that no beat reporter/columnist played as pivotal a role as Kelley in raising expectations" (Portland OREGONIAN).
