Drop a Gem on 'Em

When I finished reading “Blindsided: The Jerry Joseph Basketball Scandal” by Michael J. Mooney [2] my first thought was how nice it will be to see the piece in the next edition of “The Best American Sports Writing.” The story features good reporting and is well-constructed. It is also written in the kind of clean, succinct prose that I love. Best of all, it took me somewhere unexpected, all without drawing attention to writing style. It is top-notch storytelling. I am a newcomer to Mooney’s work but he’s been around and is accomplished. Check out his website for more [3], and do yourself a favor: read this story.
