    A.J. Daulerio posted a brief Q&A with Jordan on Deadspin ...

    Welp, I think I have a new favorite writer. Can't wait to grab the book.

    Reminds me of Elaine Benes' father.

  4. There's testosterone all over the floor.
    In the photo, he looks like Brian Fantana.

    Based on Jordan's photo, I guess being an "authentic man" means posing menacingly with guns.

    if he's such a man, why doesn't he do real journalism...

    has he ever been in a war zone?
    ever done an investigative expose?
    dug into public records?
    developed a police or court source?

    mr. tough guy writes profiles about athletes...from the safe distance of features...never has to deal with the day-to-day job-on-the-line battle for news

    can you imagine steve fainaru, who won a pulitzer for his iraq coverage, being so puffed up with himself...

    can you imagine mark fainaru-wada and tj quinn being so self-impressed...pat jordan couldn't carry their jockstraps

    this guy is completely and utterly lacking in humility...which comes through in his writing...full of pompous judgments

    by the way, where was pat jordan before balco - where was he on the steroids story - if he's mr. truth seeker where was he?

    then he wants to 'profile' canseco five years after the fact...what a blowhard...

    Maybe he couldn't make it through the metal detector at the airport.

    Well, these days he is an author and not a newspaper reporter.

    Chuck Norris is scared of Pat Jordan. Just ask Pat Jordan.

    Too bad Meg Ryan didn't get Russell Crowe to mix it up with stepdad Pat. Would have been fun.

    He's not a beat writer, nor an investigative projects reporter. He's a magazine profilist, and he is damn good at it.
    Not all writers have the same journalistic mission.
