Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Sports Desk: Every Day We March [by Gabrielle Calvocoressi]:


I always get so confused/hurt/angry when a friend, especially a writer friend, tells me they hate sports. (Maybe, I think, they just hate life). Sports ARE about stories and allegiances: all that drama! Sports teach you the value of each second--literally each second: ask Kobe Bryant what he knows about the value of one second. Sports remind you, too, that you have to fight for what you believe in: a win, a basic human right. How can people not see the so many metaphors and symbols sports offer?

This post is wonderful. Thanks for the sunset-Orioles image. I'll cherish that.

What a phenomenal concept and column. Thanks so much for this. I've been going to Orioles games since I was 4 (and Colts, now Ravens) and writing and/or following poetry on and off and on since 14.

I love the overlaps and parallels and commentary you are adding and look forward to reading more!

When the Saints go marching in, I hope they have the Vikings' number. (And I hope they will face the Jets, not the Colts.) Nicely done, Gaby.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
