Grantland Rice - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (581 words)
Grantland Rice (November 1, 1880–July 13, 1954) was an early 20th century American sportswriter.
Rice was born in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and subsequently attended Montgomery Bell Academy and Vanderbilt University in Nashville.
This passage, although famous, is far from atypical, as Rice's writing tended to be of an "inspirational" or "heroic" style, raising games to the level of ancient combat and their heroes to the status of demigods.
