LAST NIGHT'S HIGHLIGHTS: ESPN's Cover Story was on the
documentary "Hoop Dreams." 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).
