But I enjoy stories that initially appear out of my wheelhouse, so to speak. I get to learn about something and invariably they turn out to be not so much about the sports themselves, but the humanity. "We Walked on Water" is a beautiful, albeit tragic, story about a brother and a sister. As the story goes on, we get to witness how a sport can become so much more.
