by Stage Tube - Jan 13, 2016

Today in 1925, the late Broadway legend Gwen Verdon was born. Verdon was an actress and dancer who won four Tony awards for her musical comedy performances.

She is also strongly identified with her second husband, director-choreographer Bob Fosse, remembered as the dancer-collaborator-muse for whom he choreographed much of his work and as the guardian of his legacy after his death. Verdon is most remembered for starring in Sweet Charity, Chicago, and Damn Yankees. (more...)

However, it is also a special time of year for sports fans, with the baseball playoffs in full swing, college and pro football seasons well underway, and the hockey and basketball schedules kicking off.

After I graduated from The Ohio State University (college football's defending champion and current No. 1 team, by the way), my first few jobs were in covering and coaching college and professional sports.
