ARENA: Sports SF

Irwin Shaw? Bruce Jay Friedman? Pretty exotic names for an sf anthology--but how many sf anthologies feature telepathic linebackers and Martian baseball teams, robot golfers and extraterrestrial pool players? Among the more familiar sf presences: Malzberg, James E. Gunn, and the incomparable Algis Budrys (""Nobody Bothers Gus""). Most original sports event: a ladies' club's annual husband-fattening contest in the Hitchcockesque ""Gladys' Gregory"" by John Anthony West.
