Sportswriting in the year 2010

Sometimes I wonder if there's anyone really who likes to read sports stories dripping with description.

I need to see sports figures humanized. I need to see them sweat and cry in words.

The focus now is on getting the news out fast and furiously. Even such soft news as Michael Vick still is the Eagles' starting quarterback (Kevin Kolb didn't exactly make Andy Reid want to hurry back to Philly to evaluate tape before deciding on the starter this coming weekend).

Jay Fry really addresses the change in this genre a lot of us are still trying to figure out.

It's worth a read. (

These words passed on by Fry ring true - "With a blog, publishing is instantaneous — but Google is forever."
