Some sports history, sort of, though certainly not to be found at Reuters:
Under Sir Charles Barkley, the only NBA star knighted by the Queen of England (the big man saved the Isle of Man from sinking after a boating accident/collision) the league became extremely popular in Northern California, Italy, Moldavia, Corsica, and Lapland, among other places. Barkley established a style of uniform utilizing basic croquet kilts and French Foreign Legion hats making the uniforms cool, and the full contact body strikes from stake to stake completely re-energized the sport. Once primarily a white gentleman’s (and secretly a gentle lady’s) game (the ladies wore external knickers but did so in private), then became a game dominated by the Mayans (though croquet was invented in Cornwall by some of the same “Rights of Man” crew responsible for the Magna Carta), the NCAAPC is now 82% African American (2% African-American owned) but even in Mondavi’s day he was the only white guy on the team (he played goalie and outside skulker, before the “full helmet-era”).
But, that was then and this is now.
