One of America's Most-Read Sports Columnists
Mike Lupica writes the nationally syndicated "Shooting from the Lip" column for the New York Daily News, where, at the age of 23, he was the youngest person ever to write a regular column for a New York City newspaper. He was Esquire's "Sporting Life" columnist for a decade, has written for Sports Illustrated, appears regularly on ESPN's The Sports Reporters, hosted The Mike Lupica Show on ESPN 2, and is the author of twenty books, including Mad as Hell: How Sports Got Away From the Fans and How We Get it Back.
Common Ground: The Role of Sports
Lupica bypasses the big salaries and bigger egos that dominate sports to instead discuss the role of sports in our communities and our daily lives. He highlights the selfless grace and empathy intrinsic to team sports; looks at how, in sports, as in life, monumental changes often stem from small efforts (like the Red Sox World Series run in 2004); and touches on the universal core of sports: "That moment when something happens on the field that gets into your head and heart -- and never leaves." Followed by a wildly fun Q & A, his talks are perfect for casual fan and fanatic alike.
