SPORTS AND THE SIX-WORD STORY
Inspired by SMITH Magazine's Six-Word Memoir project and its best-selling book (see below), The Mag.com wants your teeny take on the wide world of sports (capitalize that and it's a registered ABC trademark, btw.)
Each week we'll choose a topic—the Yankees, Brett Favre, steroids—and ask you to submit six words that sum up the topic best for you. Be bold. Be clever. Be PG-13 or cleaner or we won't post it! Need an example?
Last time, we asked for six-worders about Jeremy Shockey
Our winning entry: " 'Break a leg' - New York Giants"
(Johnny, North White Plains)
We also liked: "'What, a Manning played here, too?."
And: "He's a Saint, but no angel."
(Rob M., Philadelphia)
This week's topic: ALEX OVECHKIN
might get all the props from the casual fan, but Alex Ovechkin just might be the best pure scorer the NHL has ever seen. Can he make the Caps a legitimate contender for the Stanley Cup and step out of The Kid's shadow?
