IN LATE MARCH, Yuko Arimori, a two-time Olympic medalist, found herself in a tense exchange on live TV with an official from the Tokyo Games’ organizing committee. It was a Sunday evening, less than a week before the start of the Summer Olympics torch relay in Japan, and Arimori had been invited, along with seven others, to public broadcaster NHK’s downtown Tokyo studios to discuss whether the country should host the world’s biggest sporting event in the midst of a pandemic. The day before, the organizing committee had announced that spectators from overseas would not be allowed to attend the Games. It was a concession to those who opposed the event’s continuation, but one that also signaled the organizers’ determination to salvage what they could of the first Games to be…

TOPPS PROJECT 70 www.topps.com Last year Topps enlisted 20 creative types to re-create 20 of its most iconic rookie baseball cards. The company’s brass had noticed more artists getting involved with—and collaborating in—the fashion and sneaker worlds. “So we thought, Look, we have this great, two-and-a-half-by-three-and-a-half trading card canvas,” says Jeff Heckman, Topps’s global director of new business ventures. “Why don’t we partner with artists and designers to create their vision of what trading cards look like.” After the success of that program, Topps has broadened the idea to celebrate its 70th anniversary. The company asked 51 artists to reimagine old cards, combining a player and a Topps design from the archives. So imagine Mike Trout on a 1976 card or Coco Crisp in an homage to Oscar Gamble’s iconic traded card from…

WATCH MOMENT OF TRUTH IMDb TV, streaming now A plot thread in last year’s The Big Dance megahit gets the full-blown documentary treatment. This five-part series delves into the 1993 murder of Michael Jordan’s father, James—and raises the possibility that one of the two men convicted is innocent. WATCH KENTUCKY DERBY May 1, 2:30 p.m. ET, NBC Life is not as good for trainer Bob Baffert as it was early in the Triple Crown season, when his Life Is Good was the Derby favorite. A leg injury knocked out the colt, opening up the field in the 147th Run for the Roses, which is slated to take place in front of more than 20,000 fans.…

high stakes

SIX YEARS AGO this month, American Pharoah began his run to the Triple Crown by winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes before making history on June 6 at the Belmont. In ending a 37-year stretch without a Triple Crown winner, the bay colt charged to a 5½-length victory—at least that’s what Erick W. Rasco was told after the race. “I did not see any bit of it,” he says. In his quest to capture the feel of the moment, Rasco waded into the crowd near the finish line. “My goal was to get spectators,” he says. He got more than he bargained for. “As the race started I became buried by the crowd,” he recalls. “Everyone was jumping, yelling; beer was flying.” Knowing he wouldn’t be able to shoot…

thrown off

AFTER EVERY errant throw on a baseball field, there comes a moment, once you have failed to point your front shoulder at your target or misplaced your four-seam grip or neglected to open your hips, when you realize you are doomed. All that is left for you is one excruciating thought. “You’re just hoping something crazy happens and you make an out,” says Jose Altuve. Then ball collides with dirt and hope collides with reality. Again and again last October, reality left Altuve shaking his head in frustration as his teammates chased after throws he bounced in front of them or sailed beyond them. In the cavernous stadium devoid of fans where the Astros and the Rays played for a pennant, it seemed as if every person in Petco Park winced whenever…
