Last night, 3/28/21, 60 Minutes reported on Dave Kindred. After covering the top stories in sports for decades, he’s now covering girls high school basketball.

In 1984, Dave was nationally syndicated and covering the LA Olympics. He wrote an article that was a petulant tirade about Mary Lou Retton being denied a childhood by the rigors of training for the Olympics. I fired off a response. In an ensuing article that was his mea culpa, he quoted me, saying that I best stated the summation of many replies he had received.

Everybody chooses how to spend their retirement, Dave. You’re not creepy. You’re a sports writer, covering an underserved beat. Keep on scribbling.
