Our Favorite Stories, part 2

The first time we unleashed Our Favorite Stories, it was a rousing success. So, we’re back for more.

A quick reminder: I talked to three guests and asked them the same five questions.

1) Who is your favorite player/coach to have covered?

2) Who is your least favorite?

3) What’s your favorite story/moment from the road/from the beat?

4) Who’s your favorite current writer, sports or otherwise?

5) Who’s your all-time favorite writer, sports or otherwise?

I gathered some buddies — the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Paul Dehner, Yahoo! Sports’ Dan Wetzel and the Indianapolis Star’s Candace Buckner — and basically, we just told stories.

You’ve got to hear Dehner’s tales about covering Wally Backman as a minor league manager in Albany, Georgia; Wetzel’s reasons why Dan Jenkins is one of all his-time favorite writers; and Buckner’s sadness that Sports Illustrated’s Gary Smith has retired.
