Me And Pedro Go To The Top Of The Empire State Building, Just Porque

Yesterday morning, I woke up all furry and blurry to tour the Empire State Building with Pedro Martinez as part of (obligatory plug) the Pro Glide Ultimate Summer Job thingee he was in town for. Vamanos. » 8/06/10 12:55pm 8/06/10 12:55pm

Gregg Doyel: Anger Is A Gift

There's something about columnist Gregg Doyel » 11/25/08 12:15pm 11/25/08 12:15pm that's very appealing, even though his combative nature and his would most often have him seated at the douchey table, he at least comes across as comfortable in his own Affliction T-shirt. Doyle has been on the wrong-end of many Deadspin posts and also…

A Few Moments With Gary Smith

Sports Illustrated's Gary Smith has won the National Magazine Award four times, which is almost as impressive as the fact that almost no one knows his name. Unlike his longtime friend and associate Rick Reilly, Smith keeps a low profile, writing his four in-depth, massive character studies a year, living in… » 9/19/08 11:30am 9/19/08 11:30am

Sean Salisbury Isn't Angry Anymore

And here we have the second portion of our interview. It's more of the same, but Sean does calm down (somewhat) to emphasize a few things. Even though he sounds enraged when he's telling you "he's not angry." He's wholeheartedly trying not to be, but I get the sense that he could sound enraged when he's ordering a… » 8/15/08 11:15am 8/15/08 11:15am

Sean Salisbury Has A Lot On His Mind

Sean Salisbury is at a transitional period in his life and talks rapidly — almost haphazardly — about anything that pops into his head. He's overtly defensive at times, and in our almost 2-hour phone conversation yesterday, he went through a deliberate unloading process. It was therapeutic, unhinged, and veered… » 8/14/08 11:00am 8/14/08 11:00am

Fred Lynn Is America's Fishing Buddy

Former major leaguer Fred Lynn is probably one of the nicest guys on the planet. He's a man who's brimming with self-contentedness and is disarmingly friendly. After you speak with him for two minutes, it's no surprise that seemingly every dude who grew up in New England in the past 40 years is so overtly smitten with… » 5/05/08 3:30pm 5/05/08 3:30pm

Jay Glazer Owns The NFL

There's this thing about Jay Glazer that kind of makes you like him and annoyed by him at the same time. He seems like type of guy you'd hit the 50-cent wing and $8 pitcher special with at a bar for six hours, but then he'd get bored and drag you to a way-too fancy club just because "he knows people there." Then you'd… » 4/24/08 4:00pm 4/24/08 4:00pm
