Description
Joining the staff of Sports Illustrated fresh out of Princeton in 1962, and still there 50 years later—as well as piloting the ill-fated National Sports Daily; winning Peabody, Emmy, and National Magazine Awards; and broadcasting more than 1500 commentaries on NPR's Morning Edition—Frank Deford defines the term "legend" in sportswriting. In a memoir as unconventional and wide-ranging as his career, Deford takes us back to the Mad Men–like days of SI in the 1960s and the bush years of the early NBA, portrays exceptional athletes and colleagues from Arthur Ashe to Red Smith, and considers the evolution of sports in America.

"Frank Deford is the best sportswriter I've ever read.... If there's a Mount Rushmore of sportswriting, Deford is up there, purple ties and all."—Tony Kornheiser
