Sports Medicine Column Celebrates Thirty Years

When then-Times assistant sports editor Paul Mullaney approached me about writing this column early in the summer of 1985, I thought I could do a pretty good job of it — for a year or two. Then, I expected, the ideas would run out.



Over the next 30 years, Mullaney ultimately became the managing editor of The Times before departing last year to become President of Bishop Noll Institute.
Meanwhile, the column has continued. And rather than struggle for ideas, I have found that in the typical week, there is more to discuss — from A to Z — than there is space available.
