WINTER DOLDRUMS? Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn appeared on CBS’ “Late Show” last night, with David Letterman saying he "was looking through the sports pages the other day" and in "tiny, tiny little print they have World Cup ski results from Austria. One, I didn't know the season had begun and two, why does it have to be tiny, tiny, tiny little print?" Vonn: "I don’t know. Can you fix that?" (“Late Show,” CBS, 10/28).
MANIFEST DESTINY: SI’s Lee Jenkins said of an NFL franchise in London, “It’ll happen. There’s a race, clearly, between the NBA and the NFL in who’s going to get international first” (“Rome,” CBSSN, 10/28).
STRIVE FOR DIVERSITY: Camping World Truck Series driver Darrell Wallace Jr., on what his achievement as the first African-American winner on a national NASCAR series since '63 can do for the sport: “Hopefully, it changes it for the better. It’s increasing every day, you are starting to see more minorities in the stands, behind the wheel of cars, working at the track, dealing with sponsors, so it’s all changing. That’s the main goal, that’s what the diversity program is for” (“NASCAR Race Hub,” FS1, 10/28).
