A look back

Sports Illustrated has done something very interesting on its Web site.

It has put its entire editorial content -- throughout its history -- on line. For free.

Remember an article from the past? Do a search and there it is. It's obviously a great reference tool, but it's also fun.

Here's an example for Western New York audiences. I still own a copy of a 1969 Sports Illustrated that had a rather discouraging profile of Buffalo. It had a black-and-white picture of War Memorial Stadium that would have looked just as gray had it been taken in color.

The story is still interesting. To find it, click here.

Happy reading.
