I routinely try to show that the divide between sports and academics is not a wide one, and a certain star from last night's amazing Super Bowl proves just that. New England Patriots wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell, who had an excellent game, is more than just a great target for Tom Brady. He has made himself into quite the literary star as well. Take a look at this great piece from yesterday's CBS Sunday Morning. And remember, whenever a group of old ladies asks you to be part of book club, you should do it.
