Thread Name: Sporting hero songs?
Subject: RE: Sporting hero songs?
One would think, what with all the purple prose used by sportswriters of the 1920's and 1930's in the U.S. such as Grantland Rice and Ring Lardner, et al, that there must have been songs sung in celebration of Red Grange, The Four Horsemen, Bobby Jones, Babe Zaharias and the rest. I have had no luck finding them as yet. Our companions in song from across the broad waters can't possibly have a monopoly on this...or can they?
