    One thought on “Grantland Issue 3”

    1. I read most of this quarter s stuff online during the slow march of death that is known as May as a high school Math teacher.What will make these quarterly s really shitty is that when the content sucks online, the quarterly will suck also So when I open the package to see the a pouting Tom Brady, NBA players dressing like Carlton Banks and the overanalyzed Jeremy Lin on the cover, I was worried Rightfully so, even if the article on NBA fashion drives home a great point that the current nerd loo [...]

    2. Another solid collection of sports and pop culture writing Not as great as volume 2 but still good The highlights are two very good pieces on the future of the NFL re the concussion problem, and one great piece on the career of Tom Molineaux Like the 2nd volume there is an ill advised short story at the end, however this one is just flat out bad Overall though this is still some of the best sports writing out there, beautifully crafted in collaboration with McSweeney s Just skip the short story [...]

    3. Grantland delivered another fun edition of the quarterly As usual, not everything is great, but I find I appreciate the articles I wouldn t usually read when they show up online But the quarterly manages to at least keep me somewhat connected to some of the pop culture that I often ignore And I love the articles like the Eddie Murphy history that describe full careers in a way that allows the reader to connect with eras that have been forgotten or never experienced The detailed story of the Pala [...]

    4. I continue to enjoy this intersection of Grantland s writing and McSweeney s art and design Connected with of the stories in the third quarterly than the second, especially the oral history of the Malice in the Palace and the pieces about head injuries the future of football.The copy editing was improved from the second issue that had several dropped footnotes What did we miss.Looking forward to future volumes that will keep me abreast of what happened in sports and pop culture three months ago [...]

    5. This issue was even uneven I like the idea that Grantland covers the intersection of sports and popular culture, but Simmons really needs to mature beyond his obsession with reality TV I know that he and his buddies love it, but I think he dramatically misjudges the interests of his readers I also think it is time to take this endeavor past its initial basement blog navel gazing and actually commission some writers to get out into the field and really discover some good long form stories.

    6. These volumes are beginning to fall into a nice reliable pattern The Bill Simmons stuff is always good Brian Phillips can make me care about anything even soccer and I love Louisa Thomas stuff Needs David Shoemaker I also enjoy the short stories at the end of these volumes Finally, the oral history of the fight between the Pistons and the Pacers was very well done.

    7. Some really outstanding articles and some others which only a year later are already dated or just boring Would give it 3.5 stars.

    8. The sports writing is good the celebrity gossip three articles on the Oscars, coverage of so called reality TV, Van Halen, et cetera ad nauseum blows major donkey dick.
