Far and away my favorite sports column is Gregg Easterbrook's Tuesday Morning Quarterback, which can be found at ESPN.com's 'Page 2.' The NFL coverage is much better than you'll find on the regular ESPN NFL page (I don't want a blog. Any shmoe can write a blog: I want qualified columnists) and the offerings over at CNNSI.com.
But Easterbrook also offers thoughtful commentary on other subjects (such as the European supercollider and the absurdity of public officials spending $$ on personal bodyguards to feel important). This week's column starts off with a look at the ridiculous 'cupcake scheduling' so many major college football teams utilize to get easy home game wins to start the season.
TMQ is the only column I make certain not to miss during football season.
