Lewiston Daily Sun: Sportswriters are often criticized for taking sports too seriously. Do you agree with that?

Roger Angell: No, I think our trouble is that we don’t take sports seriously enough. I mean, we’re always trying to turn sports into something else—into entertainment, or into another television show.

In sports at its best, there’s something really stirring and moving and different about it. It isn’t entertainment, it has an entirely different meaning. It’s not something you can buy, because you can’t guarantee the result. That’s why there’s boring games—there’s diversity; we don’t know how it’s going to come out.

But a lot of the people involved in sports, certainly some of the owners today, don’t seem to be aware of that. George Steinbrenner wants a guaranteed result of every game that’s played; he wants the Yankees to win. And winning isn’t all there is to it. Winning is nice, but you have to deserve to win, you know?
