I’ve been privileged to interview some fascinating people over the years:
Lance Armstrong. Martina Navratilova. The Dalai Lama. Loretta Lynn. Jackie Robinson. Casey Stengel. Tony Blair at 10 Downing Street.
I petted Secretariat once. (Somebody smuggled a sugar cube or two, and Big Red rumbled over.)
On Thursday, Dec. 4, I will be talking about some of my favorite interviews, at the Amsterdam Harborside in Port Washington, Long Island, from 2-4 PM.
The Amsterdam Harborside is a residence high on a bluff overlooking Hempstead Harbor. I’m eager to see it myself.
I’ll be signing my World Cup book and a few other books of mine, courtesy of the Dolphin BookShop.

I had a wonderful time on the #NYTReadalong Feb. 7 with Sree Sreenivasan and Neil Parekh, talking about the Super Bowl and the great paper where I used to work. Thanks to all the nice people who sent messages while I was babbling. The Readalong is Sunday, 8:30-10:15 AM Eastern, and the link is available after that.
