    I wanted to give this a bump, simply because I truly enjoy Seth's writing (no, I have never met him) and I think he makes a very good point about being bold and having other talented writers to push you. That's damn good advice, and I wish I'd had someone to nudge me into being a little bolder when I was in college.

    A good interview. Wish it had been longer.

    I'm glad he gave credit to Greg Mellen. I was blessed to serve under the man as well, and he was a profound influence.

    No photo credits ... is sleazy Big Lead back to stealing copyright content?

    I love the story about Thompson getting all of the Super Bowl credentials. I'm guessing that was not an easy thing to do...

    This guy sounds like such a dork. I love it. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to know I'm not the only loser who feels like road trips and tournaments are vacation because of how much I look forward to spending time in restaurants (bars) talking shop with other reporters.

    Seconded, in spades. Man knows his journalism, and is always willing to impart some wisdom.
