    (November 25, 1968- )
    Born in Boston, Massachusetts
    Sports commentator on ESPN

    Columnist for ESPN The Magazine and ESPN.com (2007- )

    He criticized Shaquille O'Neal for publicly stating that he doesn't do politics, accusing him of acting as a 'pitchman' and of making a 'calculated decision.'
    He penned a letter complaining about the Chicago Blackhawks wearing camouflaged jerseys on Veterans Day, which he said gave the vibe of 'systematic removal' (the team logo is a Native American).
    He was arrested for assaulting his estranged wife in front of their 6-year-old son.
    Witnesses claimed they saw him place his hands on his wife's neck and push her into a parked car.
    He was criticized for calling the presence of military and police at sporting events 'authoritarian' and 'staged patriotism.'
    He was criticized for complaining that 9/11 contributed to a 'hero narrative [for police that] has been so deeply embedded within its game-day fabric that policing is seen as clean, heroic, uncomplicated.'
    The criticism earned him a scathing rebuke from Tomi Lahren, who seethed: 'Listgen here buddy those police officers are the ones that serve and protect those poor communities are referring to... They're out there night and day to protect arrogant jackasses like you. How dare you.'
    He is a native of Dorchester.
    He began his career covering the New York Yankees, Oakland Athletics, and later the Washington Redskins.
    He is the first writer to have twice been awarded the Casey Award for Best Baseball Book of the Year (2002 and 2010).
    The domestic assault charges were dropped after it was revealed that the police report relied almost entirely on witness testimony.
    His columns for ESPN The Magazine were nominated for the National Magazine Award for commentary in both 2016 and 2018.
    His Hank Aaron biography was chosen as 'One of the Ten Best Books of the Year' by Dwight Garner at the New York Times.
    He has been an outspoken voice on the intersection of sports/athletes and the topic of race.
