Salisbury, North Carolina, an oasis of hope for sports media

Here’s what the late, great Atlanta sports columnist wrote nearly 50 years ago about sportswriters and sportscasters heaven — Salisbury, North Carolina: "The swallows have Capistrano. The movie-makers have Cannes. Mountain climbers have the Matterhorn. The Irish have St. Patrick’s Day. Geese fly south for the winter. The dead ‘go west.’ Salmon swim upstream. Stanley had Livingston. George Burns had Gracie Allen. Tinker and Evers had Chance. Tarzan and Jane had ‘Boy.’ Sports writing and sports casting types well, they have Salisbury, county seat of Rowan.” (Washington Times)
