Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

True story: Way back in 1998, when we were a wee lad logging agate text at The Sporting News, one of the magazine staffers sent a company-wide email after Jim Gray's famous Pete Rose interview demanding that all writers sign a petition saying that Gray should be fired. We found this a bit extreme, and said so, in a "reply all" message that went to the whole company. We were 22 years old. We didn't understand office politics too well. We still don't.

Anyway, do you like the Jim Gray? Do you not like the Jim Gray? Let us know.

By the way, there is not a second vote for his hair, or a debate about who would win in a fight between Gray and Mitch Albom.
