Sports On Earth

Hello All,

Long time no see. Just wanted to share some news that my essay on my evening interviewing Mike Tyson will be coming out soon in the magazine Sports On Earth, which is a spinoff of Deadspin. From Vice to the New York Times, this essay has had a very weird life of its own and was in the hands of a lot of editors that had very differing visions of it.  I considered it dead for a while until recently. It has a very cool anecdote involving Tyson and Muhammad Ali.

I’ll keep you posted when it goes to press.
