In which I tell you to go away

If someone knows whether there is an RSS feed for Simon Barnes' Times articles that gives you anything other than his birdwatching columns, please tell me. I keep almost forgetting. Anyway, my most recent tract posited that sportspeople essentially play for their own sakes rather than for the spectator. Barnes' latest deals with why sportspeople play; in particular, why those such as the rowers in tomorrow's Boat Race would put themselves through so much pain for little tangible reward. It's really quite wonderful. Do read it.
