52 Weeks: Interviews with Champions!
The agents and handlers have left the building, and Dave Hollander is in the house, taking on the country 2s top athletes in no-holds-barred interviews for the underground sports paper, New York Sports Express. Here are uncensored, off-the-cuff looks at the world of sport from current and former players like Jeremy Shockey, Dwight Gooden, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Vince Carter. It 2s a must-read for any sports fan.
In his weekly column, 3Open Mic, 4 Hollander rarely treads the well-beaten sports path, instead leading his subjects into candid assessments of competitors and excursions into offbeat topics. Hollander talks with running back Dave Kopay about coming out of the closet, argues about Alaska and Hooters with NFLer Larry Csonka, discusses the finer points of head-butts with New York Knick John Starks, muses on jail with Lawrence Taylor, and commiserates with Keith Hernandez regarding the retirement of Eugene Maleska from the world of crossword puzzles.
And there are also interviews with Jim Brown, Jim Bouton, Rickey Henderson, George Plimpton, Oscar Robertson, Willis Reed, Mark Gastineau, Sarah Hughes, Larry Holmes, Carl Lewis, Petr Nedved, Willis Reed, and more.
Human and revealing, hilarious and heartfelt, Hollander 2s interviews are part Charlie Rose, part Jon Stewart, and a refreshing break from the pat sports clich 9. 52 Weeks is fifty-two chapters of off-the-hook fun for the sports fan.
