Reading

Before you read


This article is about a popular TV show where people bring their special antiques (old
possessions) and experts talk about them. Think about these questions. Do you have any
antiques? Why do you keep them? Are they worth a lot of money?

My Secret
Daily News/Inside Sports By Dan Stone

1 I’m a sports writer and I love my job because I love sports, especially football and baseball.
But I have a secret. Every Monday night I watch my favorite TV show. Sometimes the
telephone rings, but I don’t answer it. I tell my friends that I watch “Monday Night Football,”
but that isn’t true.

2 My favorite show is more exciting than a football game. It’s also very educational. I learn a
lot about art and U.S. history every week. Here is my secret: On Monday nights I watch
“Antiques Roadshow.” It’s a show about antiques and collections. It’s great!

3 The show travels from city to city. The guests on the show are real people. They bring in old
art, furniture, books, toys, and other antique things they collect. First the guests tell the experts
about their items. The stories are the best part of “Roadshow.” Then the experts talk about the
items. Finally, the experts say how much the people can sell the items for.

4 One woman, Veronica, had a painting of trees and animals. Veronica’s grandmother got the
picture for free in 1925. The expert looked at Veronica’s picture carefully and said, “This is a
very rare painting by the American artist Thomas Cole. Cole painted this around 1835. Your
painting is worth $125,000.” Veronica was very surprised. “Wow!” she said. “That’s a lot of
money! But I don’t really care about the money. I’m going to keep it because it reminds me of
my grandmother.”

5 I’m ready for “Antiques Roadshow” to come to my city. I have a baseball signed in the 1940s
by Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson. It’s in perfect condition. I also have a baseball card
collection. I’d like to hear if my autographed baseball and baseball cards are worth a lot of
money!

6 And you . . . are you ready? Look carefully around your home! You might have something
very valuable. And remember, don’t call me on Monday nights. I’m watching “football.”
