This week, Bill Simmons did a mailbag column. It was pretty solid, with highlights including a who’s-who of bromances in pop culture/sports over the past few decades.
This week, Rick Reilly wrote the same heartwarming/athlete-indicting/tearjerking column he’s written 500 times.
But last night, after a lengthy conversation with my roommate about the state of The Media At Large and how they’re coping with the Hyper-Critical and Largely Unproductive Blogosphere, he pointed me to the work of a sportswriter named William Nack. This dude, much like the MWC conference’s commish, is pretty Gentlemanly. In speaking engagements, he has been known to cite F Scott Fitzgerald and Cormac McCarthy as inspiration. It’s true, narrative storytelling.
While it may not be as funny as going on a tirade about “Erick Dampier’s Expiring Contract,” you’ll feel better about yourself, and remember why you like sports. If you want more, go here.
