Up to this point in the history of mankind, the greatest sportswriter who has ever lived is named Leigh Montville. What makes this all the more delicious is he went to Notre Dame of West Haven and began in career at the New Haven Register, just like I did.
There is where the comparisons end.
Leigh Montville is and always will be my muse. I read everything he ever wrote for the Boston Globe and I miss him there dearly.
But he is still writing. And I found this. And I am very happy.
