NY Times Sports Page Goes Text Only

A nice touch.

timesfrontThe front page of today’s New York Times sports page is stark. There’s no art; only text. It’s a perfect match for the story that sits at the center of the page.

The sports page showcases a moving piece by Dan Barry. In “A Son Calls His Mother,” Barry chronicles a mother who is dealing with losing her son to a generative brain condition caused by playing football.

Read Barry’s piece here. It’s short, but powerful.
