The Year in Sports

NPR's Scott Simon talks with Weekend Edition sports commentator Ron Rapoport about the year in sports. From the Olympic figure skating flap in Salt Lake City to the controversy over women at Augusta National, women were at the center of two big sports stories in 2002. Ron and Scott also make early Super Bowl predictions.
