Baseball writer and administrator Bill James taught me to look at the sport (and hopefully at the rest of my life) from different perspectives. It's no coincidence that my hockey blog, "The Hockey Abstract," is named what it is as a tribute to him.
Morley Safer of "60 Minutes" aired a profile of James on tonight's program. I set the VCR for hours to make sure I wouldn't miss it (you never know how long a basketball game will last). I need not have worried; it was posted on the CBS News Web site. And now it's available here.
