Ben McGrath's piece in the New Yorker on the knuckleball (http://www.newyorker.com/fact/content/?040517fa_fact1) was pretty good too.

There are good writers who I think tend to get overly mawkish when it comes to baseball and other sports (Halberstam falls in this category for me sometimes), and I'm glad that the New Yorker for the most part publishes quality sports writing.


Remnick (who did the Tyson piece above) published a pretty good book on Ali a few years back.
