Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

my favorite story

I’ve probably written, oh, 5,000 articles in my career. This is officially my favorite.

I’d been haunted by Lyman Bostock for a loooong time—since childhood. Always wondered who he was; what he was like; what really happened; why it happened. Perhaps that’s the best part about my profession—you’re in the rare position to learn the answers.

Lyman’s widow is one of the coolest people I’ve ever met—a gem.

Hope y’all enjoy this.
