    Hey everyone. Latest interview is up at the blog. Here's an excerpt I thought you'd all enjoy, about how Chris went about his reporting. He was awesome. Here's the link to the whole chalupa: http://brandonsneed.com/home/2012/2/14/chris-ballard-of-sports-illustrated-on-his-mike-powell-story.html

    Thank you so much for posting this.

    I've been toiling alone for more than a decade (churning out offbeat sports features for major pubs - some involving very heavy subject matter) and I'd never had anyone to compare notes with about his/her own writing and reporting process.

    I subsequently went to your site and read the whole interview. It was very enlightening. Plus, Ballard seems like a good guy who --unlike so many of new heavy hitters in the biz -- doesn't seem to be full of himself.

    Thanks again
