This has been called a negative age.
Nobody votes for a President anymore, they vote against the
lesser of two tragedies. Norman Vincent Peale has a lower rating
than reruns of Dean Rusk press conferences.
In keeping with this infectuous Spirit of Negativism, I would like
to persuade each and every one, or should I say each, of my readers
NOT to join the Daily sports staff.
First, nobody takes us seriously. When HUAC wanted to
investigate certain "subversive" organizations on campus a couple
yearst ago, they asked the University to divulge the names of the
sports staff. But only after they got tired of taking on the Gilbert
and Sullivan Society. This despite the fact that at least two of
our members have openly declared their support of the Cincinnati
Second, everyone has it in for a sportswriter. Not just athletes
and coaches, who don't always appreciate the penetrating analyses
that flow from the typewriter, but even worse, the ever-emotional

SAN FRANCISCO - Lou John-
The Daily Sports Staff
sports fan. The fan often irrationally blames the sportswriter for a
losing Wolverine effort. Obviously, we only help win games.
One of the fan's most common methods of revenge is to try to
prove his superior knowledge of sports. Often he will ask the sports-
writer a trick question, such as "Who went to the Rose Bowl last
year?" I know I was tricked on that one.
But I have saved the worst for last. The Daily sports staff
is traditionally a strange breed. In Salem 300 years ago they would
have been burned at the stake. We have more extremists than a
KKK rally at a Black Power convention picketed by the Nazis
during a love-in at a Timothy Leary fan club meeting. If that
sounds extreme, well, I just proved my point.
Some of our staff don't even know anything about sports. One,
who happens to be a girl, still thinks the Big Ten is a set of religious
commandments. Others, of course, are sports fanatics, and think that
the Ten Comandments originated with Knute Rockne during an
especially emotional pep talk. I lean toward Frank Leahy myself.
Whatever your pleasure, there is something we don't have for
anyone. Except, of course, the nuttiest time on campus. Come over
and stare at us sometime.
