The U.S. Open brings more than tourist cash and great golf to town. Incoming 11-time Sportswriter of the Year Rick Reilly scribed for the L.A. Times before mining the obscure and compelling depths of everything from bowling to boxing at Sports Illustrated, largely though his column, “Life of Reilly,” SI's first signed opinion piece. After writing for ESPN the Magazine and ESPN.com he began crafting essays on SportsCenter from historic spots like the U.S. Open, Wimbledon and the British Open. Today his essay approach graces P.G. as he discusses and signs the book he wrote while chasing the strangest competitions in the land, Sports from HELL. [MCA]
