  • Catchings winding down...

    From last fall to now the national sports media have reported in depth on the final seasons of professional superstars Peyton Manning, Kobe Bryant and David Ortiz.
    But the final season of one superstar whose accomplishments compare well with those three has not received nearly as much publicity, and her gender seems to be the only reason.
    I’m talking about Tamika Catchings, who is finishing her 16th and last season as a forward for the Indiana Fever in the Women’s National Basketball Association.
