Isiah Thomas: "For black males in this society, the options have been so narrowly defined that you have to get on one path and go, and if you don't stay on the path and you don't make it, then that is it" ("SportsCenter," ESPN, 10/20). In a special edition of "The SportsReporters," Dick Schaap asked Frank Gifford, Lesley Visser, and Mike Lupica for their top sports hero today. Lesley Visser: "Dan Jansen. The most charismatic is Deion Sanders." Mike Lupica and Frank Gifford both said Joe Montana. Parting shots: Frank Gifford compared Joe Montana with Jim Brown; Lesley Visser paid tribute to Martina Navratilova and her place in sports; Mike Lupica commented on Penn State; Dick Schaap took a shot at Deion Sanders for injuring himself while high-stepping into the end zone ("SportsReporters," ESPN, 10/20).
