The election to the Hall of Fame of Bobby Cox, Tony LaRussa and Joe Torre, the third, fourth and fifth winningest managers in major league history, has created some controversy because all of them managed steroid users and either were sufficiently not in control of their teams not to notice, or turned a blind eye those activities.

John Odom says he doesn't think of himself as a hero. The people who helped him survive the Boston Marathon bombing are the real heroes, he says, while his role is just to inspire other victims to recover. Yet it's this type of comment that makes him even more heroic.
