Biography Section Hall of Shame
I don’t know when it hit me exactly, but at a certain point I realized that our biography section was filled with athletes who have been through either a legal or personal scandal.
Each time a new athlete is shamed, I think about their book in our collection.
In every case I can think of, we’ve kept the book. But it’s an odd feeling.
We recently added a few more recent athlete bios – fingers crossed they don’t end up in the Hall of Shame.
How’s your Hall of Shame?
