Because Wikipedia has decided to fight the power, I don’t know too much about Jeff Pearlman outside of what is listed in his official bio. He’s worked for ESPN.com and Sports Illustrated. He’s written five books, with the most recent, “Sweetness: The Enigmatic Life Of Walter Payton”, serving as the last member of the Beisner Book Club. He lives in New York. He likes swallowing gum and he likes watching his toes wiggle.
And, oh yeah, one more thing. He’s going to have a very interesting Wednesday afternoon.
