ALEX IN WONDERLAND There are times when I have had a negative feeling about someone only to read an article that changes my mind. This was not the case with your story about Alex Rodriguez. Only when he comes totally clean about his past PED use should he be truly forgiven. For you to write that he has never come close to discussing this tells me more about Rodriguez’s true character than his celebrity girlfriend or his Gulfstream. Bill Benson Newburyport, Mass. Your article on Rodriguez solidified my opinion of him: a wildly successful but comically materialistic egomaniac. A-Rod needs baseball more than baseball needs him. Craig Ritchie Barrington, Ill. NORTHERN COMPOSURE Chris Mannix’s piece was the perfect encapsulation of the enigma that is Kyle Lowry. Hardheaded but softhearted. Wasn’t a lottery pick but has an entire country…

lark side of the moon

If you want to know what aspect of the moon landing was discussed most in the bullpen it was the sex lives of the astronauts. We thought it a terrible arrangement that they should go three weeks or more without any sex life. Gelnar said that if those scientists were really on the ball.… —Jim Bouton, Ball Four BACK WHEN former PGA golfer Chris Perry was a kid, the world could pretty much be divided up into sun people and moon people. Sun “worshippers” embraced the outdoors and sported permatans; moon people were flaky night owls, happiest cavorting in a cool lunar light. As one who spent his youth striding fairways, Perry, 57, figured to be the former. Yet it’s not even close: On clear nights he can still find himself full-on…

jared lorenzen: 1981–2019

HE WAS A record-setting college quarterback—throwing for 10,354 yards and 78 touchdowns for Kentucky from 2000 to ’03—and then Eli Manning’s backup when the Giants won Super Bowl XLII over the Patriots. He went on to be an indoor football star, even serving as commissioner of the short-lived Ultimate Indoor Football League for a season. But Jared Lorenzen, who died on July 3 at age 38 of an infection, complicated by heart and kidney issues, was perhaps best known for his lifelong struggle with his weight, which he chronicled publicly in his postplaying days. Born 13 pounds and three ounces in Covington, Ky., Lorenzen was always extra large. As a 240-pounder, he outweighed his offensive linemen in high school, then tortured himself to drop 40 pounds so his college coach would…

iron maiden

A FOUR-TIME OLYMPIAN and the current world-record holder in the 200- and 400-meter IM, Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu, nicknamed the Iron Lady, is known for her intense racing schedule, which includes frequent competitions with grueling event lineups. “I use racing as training a lot throughout the season,” Hosszu says. “I go into competitions with the mentality of, This is just training, and let’s see what I can do.” Despite a split from her husband and longtime coach, Shane Tusup, last year, Hosszu says her training plan has remained steady. A perennial medal threat in butterfly, backstroke and freestyle races, in addition to the medleys, she embraces the challenge of maintaining her performance in all four strokes. “It makes it a lot more fun,” she says. “I’m not getting burned out, I’m not getting bored;…
