We've encouraged you to come to the Varsity Letters Reading Series in New York before, but if you come to tonight's endeavor, you'll be in for a special treat. (Depending on how you define "special.") The headlining reader is Sports Illustrated columnist/stand-up comic Rick Reilly. (Donald Evans and Rus Bradburd are on the bill as well.) Reilly is as big a name in this little world of sports-dork writing as you'll find, particularly when he dresses up like a woman. In preparation for the reading, he talked to Gelf about how ESPN steals all his stories.
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
