Tim Bracy: the Gentleman Sportswriter

Tim Bracy’s first sports column is up at L Magazine. He has a writing style that’s happily overwrought—it has that tingling anticipatory feeling of being one yacht race short of gentility and being too early in the afternoon for a whiskey before the fire. The column has the same name as his weblog, The Power of My Proven System, which has always made me think half about Anthony Robbins motivational cassette tapes and half about crackpot Vegas card-counting schemes.
