Every once in a while I forget it but nearly every time I run into one of his columns I remember it, Rick Reilly is hands down the best sportswriter out there. He is insightful and on point. I love his Riffs of Reilly on SI.com and also love it when, now and again, SI.com features a story of his (you can always find him bringing up the rear in SI and usually end up laughing or crying your rear end off).
This time he writes a deeply touching story about Korinne Shroyer who committed suicide and then became a life saver because of it. The pain the parents feel jumps off the page. I have no idea what I would do if something like that happened to Zoe.
I also happened to find a webpage devoted to the story of Len Geiger whose life was saved by Korinne and her parents' actions.
He just picks good stuff to cover and now and again I feel downright blessed to be alive at a time when someone like him is writing. It's awesome!!
