Sports journalism’s finest writing

In a recent mailbag, ESPN’s Bill Simmons provided a long list of the best sports writing he could think of.  At the time of reading it, I thought, geez, wouldn’t it be great if I could compile those together for readers.  This being the internet, if you have the thought and wait a day someone has already beaten you to the punch.  Max from The Millions took Simmons’ list and found many of the articles were available online for your complementary reading pleasure. Authors include Gay Talese, Roger Angell, John Updike, Norman Mailer, Hunter S. Thompson, George Plimton, and David Foster Wallace.  [via Kottke]
