Nelson and Bonnie Bedelia in 1986.

In my opinion Frank Deford has long since been one of the preeminent sports journalists of our time. What keeps me from giving this book more of a rave is that most of the pieces contained within are transcripts of his short NPR pieces and as a result sound better than they read. I am not a sports fan but, as a High School teacher and Wife & Mother of 2 sports aficionados, I am interested in the History and modern day controversies that go on in sports, so I can periodically speak with some credibility with my constituents. I bought this book for my 15 year old son, who had never heard of Deford, but is a fan of Rick O'Reilly.

So we can say that FTWillz thought that hiding his blog from other ones would have helped him with not being found out by people. Or maybe he was just desperately trying to be discovered? We passed hours on this blog, even though it has just 4 pages, and we noticed a lot of interesting stuff about his poetry.
