Nefarious__Nebula5 karma

There's an anecdote that I heard in a documentary years ago about Poe and Virginia playing in a park (I think they were playing leapfrog), and Poe rather embarrassingly tearing his pants. Do you know of any more funny anecdotes about him? It's always fun to hear more 'human' stories about famous figures, especially ones that are thought of as grim and humorless.

Same documentary stated that Poe was very athletic in his youth, but grew to despise sports. Do you know whether or not this is true, and why that might be?
