Rick Woodson tells it like it is with passion and emotion. He looks to strike at the heart of every subject he writes about. So love him or hate him, you must read him- he is the double espresso of words. Fred Smerlas, former Buffalo Bill Pro Bowl nose tackle When Rick joined the Journal staff in the mid-1960s, I think the Journal sports pages stepped up to first class. Woodson . took sports writing in this state (Louisiana) to another level. He was the first to show me that it was not only an information business, but also entertainment. Nico Van Thyn Fort Worth Star Telegram Award-winning writer Rick Woodsons collection of columns is a must read, not only for sports junkies, but for anyone interested in a behind-the scenes look at the often frivolous world of sports. Caution: Be prepared to laugh out loud. Frank Cardon Sports Editor, Rochester Times-Union If Rick Woodson could play golf as well as he writes, hed be on the Champions Tour. He doesnt take sports too seriously and thats a good thing for his readers. Rick obviously has fun writing and his observations and thoughts are worth thinking about even when you see things differently - and you probably will. Hes a little bit Jim Murray with a sharper needle. Bob Matthews, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle and WHAM-1180 sports talk show host
