The sports issue of Point of Contact features conversations, essays, and artwork by and about coach Jim Boeheim, writers Tim Green and Mary Karr, Chief Oren Lyons and Lacrosse coach Roy Simmons, Jr., film maker Owen Shapiro, and novelist and teacher Tom Friedmann. Pedro Cuperman writes in the introduction that the topics featured go beyond the commercialism and drug abuse in the sports industry. Incorporating everything from an essay on Quidditch and the obsession of English elite boarding schools with physical education to a conversation about Lacrosse between Chief Oren Lyons of the Onondaga Nation and Roy Simmons, Jr., the work in this issue explores old topics from the ""exuberance of the body"" to ""sports as a metaphor for spiritual endurance.
