Time Can’t Beat Ed Whitlock: Running’s 85-Year-Old Legend

Time Can’t Beat Ed Whitlock: Running’s 85-Year-Old Legend
wsj.com — A couple of weekends ago, Ed Whitlock went out and ran a half-marathon in 1 hour, 50 minutes, and 47 seconds. That's a pretty nice time for almost anybody. If I ran a half marathon in 1:50, I would never stop talking about it at work. I would drive everyone at work totally nuts.

Strange Smoke Signals From the NFL

Strange Smoke Signals From the NFL
wsj.com — I need to be brutally honest with readers of The Wall Street Journal: I never smoked weed out of a gas mask in college. Never, ever. Not even during freshman year. Out of a dirty purple bong with Grateful Dead stickers? Possible. An empty two-liter bottle of Mountain Dew? No comment.

What Is Basketball Without Steph Curry?

What Is Basketball Without Steph Curry?
wsj.com — For the past 18 months, all everyone's told me is, 'You have got to watch Steph Curry'-as if it's this mandatory human experience, like visiting Portland, Ore., or getting tickets to "Hamilton." On and on everyone went, about how Steph Curry was transforming the game, how he might be one of the best ever, how he was going to make me fall in love with NBA basketball again.

wsj.com — "YOU ARE IN THE LAB," Jonah Bokaer says conspiratorially, a wool hat tugged down near his eyes. It's a Saturday in late winter, and Bokaer, a celebrated modern dancer and choreographer, is seated at a nondescript table in an airy workspace in Long Island City, Queens.

Deflategate’s Endless Hissing Contest

Deflategate’s Endless Hissing Contest
wsj.com — Oh, whoop-dee-howdy-doo, Deflategate is back. Let me take a pillowcase, fill it with ping-pong balls and Tater Tots, and thwack myself over the head. OK. I'm back. Done with the pillowcase. The ping-pong balls and Tater Tots didn't hurt as much as I expected. Now I have some thoughts: 1.

Bill Walton Is All About the Bike

Bill Walton Is All About the Bike
wsj.com — In my cycling life, I've talked to a lot of charismatic bike nuts-men and women who believe bikes are magic, cars are meaningless, love to ride more than any other human activity, and may sleep in Lycra pajamas and a tiny hat, dreaming of ascending Provence's Mont Ventoux.

Let’s Sell New York With Phil Jackson

Let’s Sell New York With Phil Jackson
wsj.com — A few days ago, Phil Jackson, the superintendent of the New York Knicks basketball club/comedy supply store, delivered his season-ending exit interview to the media.

My Dream Life in NFL...Accounting

My Dream Life in NFL...Accounting
wsj.com — Fort Lauderdale, Fla. So there I was, in sun-kissed Florida, a surprise invite to an off-season camp featuring some of the elite players in the NFL. Just a few feet away, there was Julius Peppers, nine-time Pro Bowler for the Green Bay Packers- Julius Peppers! This was going to be so cool.

Tommy Heinsohn Is Forever Green
wsj.com — It's still the big man's Garden. Even if it's a different Garden, newer but not exactly new, with its own dramas and champions, though nowhere as many as the smoky cavern once ruled by Red, by Russell, by Havlicek, by Bird. Tommy Heinsohn, voice of the Boston Celtics, has arrived to work.
