Here’s a weird little side trip down memory lane:
Time magazine started coming off the presses in March 1923. In the first month one of the cover personalities was Stephen Sanford.
You know, Stephen Sanford.
OK. Sanford was a rich kid who inherited money and played polo. He was a real good polo player. He and his team (the “Hurricanes”) competed for 25 years in the U. S. Open Polo Championship (it’s still an annual event, by the way) and won several times. He also did fox hunting. He sat on the board of the Bigelow-Sanford Carpet Company, the family business.
Well, that’s it. This might be my last post on polo players. No offense to fans intended.
