Jim Thorpe cufflinks, of course, provided by none other than my wife and consumate crew chief, Sarah, for the holidays.
A childhood hero of mine, Jim Thorpe has been called "the greatest athlete in the world." As a native American he faced considerable hardship and discrimination. Today he is remembered as America's greatest athlete, a tribute to his innate abilities, gracious sportsmanship, and quiet persistence.
When I was growing up, I knew him as Jim Thorpe, All-American. And that's how I always think of him.
