All this past week plus a couple
of days IVe been thinking about
what Pm gonna be writing in this
space being that it's the last time I'm
writing anything for The Daily Tar
Heel student newspaper of the
University of North Carolina as I'm
graduating to a life of raucous
unemployment in a couple short

ing a pizza back to warm and soggy
life that being that IVe been writing
and editing at this paper for three
years and seven months of its 95
years of editorial freedom, I might
have something interesting to say
about the thing. The pizza had
pepperoni and onions and was really

had the opportunity and privilege to
see a lot of athletes and coaches and
fans and sports-type people in three
years and seven months.
IVe seen and talked to people like
Jim (Ronzoni-face) Valvano, who I
liked because he was Eye-talian and
talked a lot and split his pants on
the court. But he's also the athletic
director at North Carolina State
Wolf pack University, so he gets to
talk to the police a lot.
And I got to talk to Dean Smith

A new story by John Updike
appears in this week's New Yorker.
It continues the saga of the Jewish
writer Been as he visits Czechoslo
vakia, journeys to Kafka's grave and
hears the U.S. Ambassador's wife
whisper huskily in his ear. The story
is the usual Updike, that is to say
The reason I mention the story,
aside from the fact that mentioning

wouldn't be a good idea to call it
something that the alumni wouldn't
appreciate. Dean Smith is a nice guy

on his head.

it has a curiously metafictional
character. At one point, as he is
signing copies of his books, Bech
reflects on the nature of the writer's
role. He deems it not a method of
changing the world, nor an instru
ment of social expression.
Rather, Bech sees the writer as
ultimately self-indulgent. The author
writes for himself, saying what he
wants to say, and then attempts to
guide his work safely through the
dangerous waters of publishing,
waters infested with unappreciative

Mike Berardino: He's my favorite
radio person for saying "Let's Go St.
John's" during a Yooensee-Dook
women's basketball game.
And I also would like to mention
the five editors IVe had while on the
Deeteeyaych sports desk. In order
of the first to the last one they are:
Mike Desisti: He impressed me for
telling me how a ham biscuit was
American and an Egg McMuffin was
continental because it was made on
an English muffin with Canadian
bacon while we were running out of
gas in his car half way through the
state of West Virginia.
Frank Kennedy: A tall skinny type
of dude who used the word "geek"
a lot. He fired a girl from the sports
staff because he said she wanted his
six-fpot-two, one hundred and forty
Lee Roberts: He earned my eter
nal respect when he went to interview
an injured basketball player in the
hospital only to be turned away from
the sick bed with the words: "F
the Daily Tar Heel."
Scott Fowler: He always used to
smile and laugh a lot like he knew
something you didn't that made him
happy. Used to say "Sweet" in a way
that made him sound like he meant
editors anxious to cut prose.
This is a vision of writing which
strikes home, which unerringly finds
the heart of the act of creation. When
I write, at least when I write about
things that matter to me, I do so
informed by my own experience. The
self-indulgence of writing is what
lends it authority and fire. As I
delight in the play of form, and take
joy from language, I am self
indulgent. And I am so even as 1
attempt to write about a subject
which has meaning apart from my
Sports often provides that mean

unimportant sports are, how these

We realize that this list is not all inclusive. Due to time
constraints and paper flow, some faculty members have
inadvertently been left off the list. We apoligize, and offer
our thanks to those individuals as well.
James Surroweeki: He says "Mar-,
velous" a lot in a. way that makes:
him sound like he means it. When
they told him that he would be sports
editor he kept on mumbling about
minor league eckwivilensees and '
secondary averages. He promised me "
that he would start putting footnotes -at

games we love so are but pointless
exercises. For these games are
anything but pointless. The passion
we bring to them, to the way we play
them, to the way we write and read
about them, give them a magnificent
importance. Sport provides some
thing to hold on to, something to
care about, and so demands our
A bit of self-indulgence before I
end. The summer is about to begin.
Scott Fowler heads to Louisville to
take over the Kentucky basketball
beat. I head to Ireland, leaving
behind people I shouldn't leave. And
Bob Young will be somewhere.
Bob has been on the DTH sports
staff four years. He's the hardest
worker IVe been around since I
joined up. He's made my job as
sports editor infinitely easier. Hell,
he's carried me. Next year should be
fun. But without Bob, it won't be
the same, and it's going be tough.
So before he leaves, I just wanted
to say thanks.
