Writing about sports isn’t new to me. I report on Spartan Races across the country and I worked as an Olympic News Service reporter for hockey in Sochi. They are in my comfort zone. Recently, I was granted a rare one-hour interview with Bob Fitzsimmons, a successful lawyer for deceased football great “Iron Mike” Webster. I was completely intimidated by Bob and the sport of football. I did a lot of research and worked intently on crafting and recrafting questions that I felt were worthy of Bob’s time and would provide appealing information to readers. Bob put me at ease from the start and it turned out to be one of my favorite interviews! Last Word on Sports (LWOS) published the article today. I hope you will give it a read and find it interesting, whether you are a sports fan or not.
