Death Throws: The Demise of Sports Journalism (Media) The American Conservative read online review & book description:

GRANTLAND RICE'S famed paragraph is still cited as a model of the sportswriter's art: Outlined against a blue, gray October sky the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as famine, pestilence, destruction and death. These are only aliases. Their real names are: Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden. They formed the crest of the South Bend cyclone before which another fighting Army team was swept over the precipice at the Polo Grounds this afternoon as 55,000 spectators peered down upon the bewildering panorama spread out upon the green plain below.
