It takes great honesty and self-awareness to say that.

Funny that you mention that. Most of my writing is a response to sportswriters talking out of their behinds. I think sportswriting should be beyond the sorts of things that drunk guys say at the end of the bar. If they have access to the team, they should use that access to tell me stuff I don't already know.

I'm aiming for the sort of sports bar talk that happens between beers 1 and 2.

I will only admit that to you guys, but never to my friends. We're too competitive to allow the other to win an argument.

Maybe this is where a woman has an advantage. She can tactfully disarm a testosterone-driven ego.

TC,

You have a knack for content and style that seems to be elusive to the general Houston sportswriter community.

I pulled out a book that had this piece which I thought you would appreciate. It is written by an old-time Texas sportswriter Gary Cartwright. My favorite quote is one that one of his editors directed toward him........."Your trouble is, your fingers are too fast for your mind. This essay entitled Confessions of a washed-up sportswriter still seems to hold contemporary pertinence........at least in Houston.

While I love Steph to death, and she deserves all the love in the world for her witty, intelligent and inside reporting or blogging (whatever its called nowadays). She is the best in town, and the apex of what writing should be - I want to thank her and thank her sister, who passed, but was an extremely inspirational spirit.


Someone else who should be thanked is CloakNNNdagger.....


He does soooo much more behind the scenes than people will ever know. He's a great man, with a great heart, that knows no boundaries except that his friends are soo important to him..


Thanks Doc Jean!!!

Thank you so much TB for putting my feelings into words in a much better way than I could.
I have learned so much in the past year from this board and all its members that I am truly humbled.

SS and CnD have enriched my knowledge in many ways.

I love this MB!
