Who wouldn’t want to see Agatha Christie with her surfboard?

This was why the Internet was invented: photos of famous authors doing sports.  Here is Ms. Christie at Waikiki in 1922.  Dude!

Some of the photographs are meh: Stephen King throwing out the first pitch at a Red Sox game hardly counts as a sports photograph.  The Winslow Homery photo of a young Ernest Hemingway fishing is cute, but that fishing doesn’t qualify as a sport, if you ask me.

But Jack Kerouac scoring a touchdown in high school?  Stephen Crane posing with the rest of the Syracuse University baseball team in 1891?  Wow!

In honor of Agatha Christie, here are the Beach Boys singing “Little Surfer Girl” live in 1964.  Has it really been 50 years?

  1. My favorite memory of the Beach Boys was when Brian Wilson was receiving honorary degree from Northeastern in 2003. Wilson was caught on the jumbotron looking at his watch. Are we done yet?
