There was a time when sports – dubbed by Howard Cosell “the toy department of human life” -- provided a serious diversion to the events of the day. That can't be said in our highly-charged economic and political climate, where every major sport is looking to extract every last dime from the paying public. The absurdity of this is a target of Voort’s unique tri-weekly full-page feature, which celebrates the enduring joy of sports through editorial comments and illustrative profiles of top athletes -- and uses a graphic black-and-white retro style that evokes the Golden Age of Sports Cartooning.
