THE FRANCHISE: In N.Y., Christopher Lehmann-Haupt reviews Hyperion's "The Franchise: A History of Sports Illustrated Magazine," written by Michael MacCambridge. Lehmann-Haupt: "Although confused in its perspective, 'The Franchise' makes one nostalgic for that long-ago time when the printed word defined that unseen game and we all first fell in love with it" (N.Y. TIMES, 10/9). In K.C., Mike Vaccaro interviews MacCambridge and reports that he "interviewed more than 300 people and accumulated more than 600 hours of taped reflections, anecdotes and memories from a wealth of people in and around the magazine." Vaccaro writes, "His reward for that effort is a decisive, definitive oral history" of SI (K.C. STAR, 10/9).
