I was perusing one of my favorite sites for reading what others have written, Slate.com, when I came across this article. This was a story on athletes and how their relationship with the general public has changed over the years. Here's another writer's take on same subject. I'm sure I must have read some of Pat Jordan's writings before but I really liked his style. In that article there were links to other articles he has written. There is a profile he did on Roger Clemens in 2001. Some of the things in there are kind of ironic now that we think we know what we know about The Rocket. The one I found the most entertaining though was his story about trying to interview Jose Canseco. I just thought that maybe some of my sports fan friends would enjoy the reading.
