Links to Writers I Like

Bill Simmons is the most entertaining writer in the sports world. He does only column writing from a "fan's point of view," which draws criticism from many of his peers and reader. For my money, he is the most consistently funny writer out there, and I can't get enough of his magazine and ESPN.com writing. Here is a link to his homepage on ESPN.com. The Sports Guy's World.

Kyle Whelliston is the mid-major college basketball contributor for ESPN.com, which may not be an impressive title for the average reader or sports fan. I, however, have an unhealthy love for college basketball and mid-major college basketball in particular. To be honest, if I could do Whelliston's job I would be the happiest man in the world. He's very talented and offers great information on many lesser known programs. Here is a link to his columnist page at ESPN.com. For the latest George Mason news, perhaps.

Dan Patrick is a long time sports journalist who used to work for ESPN and anchor SportsCenter in addition to writing. Now, he is a regular contributor on all areas of sports for Sports Illustrated. He has a regular column in the magazine and keeps his page at SI.com updated regularly. Here is a link to the man himself. A sports journalism legend.
