I’m not sure I’ve read that Buddy Ryan one, I’ll have a go soon enough.
Gary Smith is so good that pretty much every story he wrote is outstanding, some are more memorable than others though, all the ones posted so far are superb,the ones about Radio and the Indian basketball team are two of my favourites, this is also excellent, a black basketball coach in an Amish community, perfect material for Gary.
