What Grantland Got Wrong

When you’re a writer, you want something you create to have a long life, to be something that readers will remember and revisit for years to come. If such was Caleb Hannan’s wish, it’s been granted, because his essay on "Dr. V and the magical putter" figures to be a permanent exhibit of what not to do, and how not to treat a fellow human being.

I posted this on a 3 day old post, so I don't know if anyone else would notice it. So here I go again.

WHEN GUMMO MEETS HOOSIERS

I have been a long time fan and associate of Davy Rothbart and his work on Found, This American Life, among other projects, and recently had the pleasure of attending the screening for his most recent project which is a documentary titled Medora. The movie captures so many elements, its tuff for me to dwindle down into a few words (hence my title for a brief synopsis)...and that may be because they had over 600 hours of footage and broke it down to a beautiful 80 minute take on the trials and tribulations of a few select boys soon to be men, a broken small town, and basketball. The movie was produced by Steve Buscemi, but has a full slate of well known and unknown creative types to make it happen. Davy and his co-director Andrew Cohn are on tour right now screening their project at cities across the US. Originally it was going to show everywhere but since I believe the list has dwindled. They'll be at the Music Box in Chi., on Dec 5th. if youre interested, and if its not coming to a locale near you, I believe you can watch it on/through their site. I give it two snaps and a rewind.

Is Baseball Missing the Next Generation of Fans?

There's one problem, though: Too many kids have found something else to do. It isn't hard to figure out why. So many games dragging deep into their fourth hour. All those AARP-eligible folks lining the lower levels of the stands. Baseball has morphed into sports' version of the opera—long productions filled with pomp, color and crazy facial hair that younger audiences just don't get. The average World Series viewer this year is 54.4 years old, according to Nielsen, the media research firm. The trend line is heading north: The average age was 49.9 in 2009. Kids age 6 to 17 represented just 4.3% of the average audience for the American and National League Championship Series this year, compared with 7.4% a decade ago.

So you want to own a piece of an athlete?

IPO Offers Stake In Pro Athlete Earnings OCTOBER 21, 2013 • FA STAFF Sports fans who have long envied the salaries of professional athletes may now get a chance to buy stocks linked to sports stars’ financial performance. Fantex, a San Francisco-based brand-building platform, is launching a $10.6 million IPO enabling investors to lay claim to 20 percent of the future earnings of Houston Texans’ star running back Arian Foster, according to The New York Times. If the IPO is successful, Foster will receive $10 million and Fantex will likely approach other star athletes to follow suit. Sources said investors won’t have a direct investment in Foster or income from his brand, such as football jerseys or advertising income. But Fantex told the New York Times it expects to pay stockholders a dividend. God I would love to have been able to short Dunn in 2011. Or 2012. Or 2013.
