For half a century one of America’s most celebrated sports journalists has been Frank Deford, whose unique ability to somehow tell a football or baseball or golf story from an angle no one had seen or thought of before has made him a legend.

Starting out in 1962 in a “Mad Men”-like environment at Sports Illustrated, Deford has since moved on to television and radio, but can still tell a tale like nobody else.
