    Wes, I enjoyed your digital story of Jim Thorpe. I have always admired his athletic prowess and what he accomplished in the early part of the 20th century. When ever I see the movie “Jim Thorpe – All American” starring Burt Lancaster http://tinyurl.com/6csae4 is on television, I have to watch it!

    It is amazing that in the Olympics today we see professional athletes competing in so called “Dream Teams” which started in the 1992 Barcelona, Spain Olympics http://tinyurl.com/66p8ja had the 1989 ruling allowing professionals to compete in the Olympics been in place when Jim Thorpe competed in the 1912 Olympics, he never would have had his gold medals taken away and his Olympic records erased in 1913.
