An Owens Returns To Berlin

Jesse Owens' great nephew, Chris, has signed to play with Berlin's Alba team,
and thus returns a
family representative
to the city of one of sport's greatest triumphs, his
great-uncle's refutation of Adolph Hitler's theories of racial
superiority. And he's playing for a familiar name: Coach Henrik Rodl, who
we're sure is the same guy who played at UNC.
