Columnists Worth Reading

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Eagleboy, Jan 11, 2007.

  1. Why? He is decent, but he is nothing special. Put it this way. He hasn't made me forgotten Vaccaro.

    I thought Colin Stephenson or Dave D'Alessandro were better choices to take Vaccaro's spot. Maybe either one can replace Izenberg.
  2. Patrick Reusse
    Jim Souhan
    Tom Powers
    Randy Galloway
    Bob Wojnowski
    Jason Whitlock

    Dan Barreiro was my favorite columnist when he worked for the Star-Tribune. Thank God he has a blog on KFAN.com. He is missed at that paper.

    Wojo's a much better read than he is a listen on the local sports talk station. Nails-on-a-chalkboard bad.
  4. Wojo's voice is beautiful. I have heard worse like WFAN's Chris Russo.

    BTW, read his take on Mickelson's meltdown Sunday at Riviera.

    Dead. On. Nails.

    Barreiro was very good.
  7. I bet if he worked in a Chicago newspaper or in New York, he would be a big name nationally. The funny thing is that he was born and raised there and he is a Chicago sports fan. I always wondered why he never had any interest in writing for the Chicago Tribune or the Sun-Times. He would be great there. With that said, I am glad he is in the Twin Cities.

    He has a very smooth political voice and the weekly "We're Done As A Society" segment is some of his best stuff.

    i see a lot of print writers.

    how come online writers don't rate?

    nobody from espn.com or si.com makes the cut?

    I use online just to keep track of games in progress. I never read the other stuff unless someone links to it here. When we had a thread a few months ago in which we built our dream writing staffs, I picked a few online people, but I was just basing it on their previous newspaper work.

    Skip Bayless. One of the few you would drive five miles and pluck down 50-plus cents for.

    A name that won't come up a lot simply because of location is Rick Cleveland with the Clarion-Ledger (Jackson, Miss.). Great storyteller. Also, a great guy, but trust me I'm not just throwing his name out because we've shared several long car trips from Jackson to Starkville (and back) and many drinks.
    The dude can really write.
