Another Way of Seeing: "USA Today's" Eddie Timanus "USA Today" sportswriter Eddie Timanus has never watched a game-but that's not stopping him.

...
Timanus has never seen any of the college games he's covered.
...
It was the Greyhounds' first Division I national title in any sport, and Eddie Timanus, 44, a longtime sportswriter covering the event for USA Today, didn't see any of it. He's never seen a lacrosse game-despite having covered scores of them. Timanus has been blind since before he was three.
...
Chuck provided play-by-play and painted the scene that Eddie needed in order to write the story.
...
Eddie helped him keep statistics by using an abacus and a couple of pegboards. The key to doing his job was listening closely to how his dad described the action. "If there's a big flurry at the offensive end where there's a couple of tips, you might lose track a little bit," Eddie says. "But I was pretty accurate for most of the games."
Graduating from college in 1990 with an economics degree, Timanus planned to attend grad school for sports management at the University of Maryland. He interned at the Supreme Court the summer before he was set to arrive in College Park. Then something unexpected happened: "The public-information officer at the court had put the word out that I was interested in working in sports. A reporter let her know that there was an opening at the USA Today sports department for a part-time news aide who would take reader phone calls and things like that."
Timanus accepted the position and in 1995 was named to the full-time staff. He has essentially had the same job ever since-with a little more responsibility. Along with editing and writing the occasional story, he oversees the influential USA Today sports polls. Each Sunday in the fall, for example, he compiles the top-25 ranking based on selections by the college football coaches.
...
Timanus says his trivia days are all but over, but that won't be the case with sports coverage. He'll once again sit with his father in the press box for the 2013 men's lacrosse Final Four this spring. Another team will jump for joy on the field, and Eddie won't be able to see anything. But you can be sure his readers will.
