    Charles P. Pierce

    My favorite sporting event of all time is the 1904 Olympic marathon, which took place in St. Louis. It was the very strangest part of the very strangest Olympics ever held. A gymnast with a wooden leg won three gold medals. The Games were held in con...

  3. The Holy Hand of Brazil

    Amos Barshad

    The greatest player to have never played in the NBA? It's a peculiar distinction. He's a mystery, this man. Willingly, he kept his talent away from us. Those who saw him play happily share their stories in awed tones. Those who merely caug...

    Brian Phillips

    This is a column about Katie Ledecky. It has a simple thesis. The thesis is that Katie Ledecky kicks ass. The thesis is a gasoline fireball from which Katie Ledecky is walking away in slow motion, too cool to look back. The thesis is the world-...

  6. Keep Team USA Young Forever

    Andrew Sharp

    So here's a quick idea for the future of USA Basketball that has probably been floated before, but bears repeating now that we're in the middle of the FIBA Basketball World Cup: What if every player can only play in one Olympic cycle? This...

  8. From Sochi to Lillehammer, and Back Again

    Louisa Thomas

    Back then, their names weren't Julia Lipnitskaia, Sidney Crosby, and Ireen Wust. Instead, they were Oksana Baiul, Peter Forsberg, and Johann Olav Koss. I suppose I was different back then, too. I was 12 years old. Still a child, though bare...

  9. Come in From the Cold

    Katie Baker

    The finest book on Russia I've ever read is Ian Frazier's Travels in Siberia, in which Frazier explains, and then indulges in, what he refers to several times as his "dread Russia-love." Frazier penned a profile of an artist who h...

    Katie Baker

    There was no line for the men's room, but the one for the ladies' snaked way around the TD Garden corridor. It looked more like intermission at a Broadway musical than a Bruins game. The 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships, though, contained eleme...
