I wish Brian Bosworth nothing but success with his XFL color job. However, the only person responsible for any glee surrounding his football downfall is Bosworth himself. Dave McKenna (“Boz Knows,” 4/6) failed to mention the mid-’80s Sports Illustrated piece in which Bosworth boasted of such proud moments (steroid-induced, perhaps?) as stealing change from a fountain and taking someone else’s beer and then daring anybody to mess with him. My favorite was the story that he had purposely attached extra rattle-producing bolts to GM cars he worked on at the Oklahoma City plant. Maybe the sportswriters who tore him down had bought some of those cars.

I’d like to know how Bosworth feels about that article now.
