Thanks to Do You Remember!

Sports Legends Revealed at ESPN.com!

I’ll be posting some Sports Legends Revealed columns at ESPN.com. They’ll be unique to ESPN, so when a column goes up over there, I’ll link to it here (like how I link to Comic Book Legends Revealed at Comics Should Be Good on Entertainment Legends Revealed).

A Format Change

Just as a head’s up, I’m re-formatting the site to have the legends each have their own individual entry. It is how I’ve been doing them every week at the L.A. Times and I think it likely works best going forward. So I’m going to go through all of the old entries and re-post them [...]

My New Book is Out!

My new book, Why Does Batman Carry Shark Repellent? (the answer, of course, is so he can repel sharks…and other dangerous sea creatures) is out today! The book contains a series of lists about comic books. Some examples include the three topics depicted on the cover (which was drawn by Kevin Hopgood, the fellow who [...]

Archives Are Up!

I finally finished putting together archives for all the sports legends (that have had at least five installments). Check them out (I’ll also include the archive links in future installments for each of them, of course)!

Opening Night!

As baseball goes back to playing ball, so, too, do we go back to brand-new sports legends! I’ll be opening up with eight straight installments of baseball legends (appearing on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from April 5th through April 21st) before then returning to the regular schedule of new sports legends on Mondays and Fridays [...]

Another Slight Change…

I like the new set-up, I think it looks a lot nicer. That said, that still leaves a whole pile of legends left in the old format, so what I figure I’ll do is for the next couple of weeks, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I’ll re-post the old legends in the current format. It is [...]

Slight Format Change

After doing this for a month or so now, I think that the set-up I use for Entertainment Legends Revealed is probably just a more attractive format, so starting this week, I’m going to begin using that set-up, with installments on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I’ll have it be three legends from one sport each [...]

Welcome to Sports Legends Revealed!

With the release in two weeks of my new book, Was Superman a Spy? and Other Comic Book Legends Revealed (see the sidebar to pre-order a copy!), I thought it would be neat to have a site here (and at Entertainment Legends Revealed) where I can discuss other legends revealed! The way this will work [...]
