Bill Simmons, Allaround Guy
EPSN's "Sportsguy" and New England native Bill Simmons is one of my favorite essayist. Though not considered by most in the same league as peers such as the Klosterman's and Sedaris’ of the world, he has offered a compelling, unique and transcendent approaches to sports journalism. I just came across one of his more recent articles describing silly but ingénues ways to subjectively determine the best actors of all time. It's a great read and indicative of why I like Simmons so much; he combines my love of sports and film and makes it all the same.
