Lionizing Sports Heroes and Other Pastimes
I ran across this reference on one of the Rivals message boards earlier today, and have spent an hour or two debating with myself whether to post. What the heck, it is sort of team news, right? The Sports Illustrated season preview will hit the stands today (or tomorrow?) and will contain a feature on three D1 players, BYU's Jimmer Fredette, KState's Jacob Pullen and Villanova's own Corey Fisher, set in the comic book format, illustrated by DC Comics. The front is below...
Each player gets a pair of facing pages, scripted by SI's feature writer Luke Winn. Corey's page (immediately below), manages to recount Fisher's legendary 105 point game in Watson-Gleason Park last August, while also sneaking in what might be the 500,000th reference to Fisher-Price toys. Corey's effort eclipsed Fly Williams' 35 year old 100 point record.
You Are A Legend Corey!
