My favorite ESPN writer

No. Not the sports guy; but Paul Shirley. The wandering journeyman's occassional diary entries are weekly must-reads for me. Notwithstanding all of my gripes against ESPN, that it sought fit to bring us Shirley's writing talents almost makes up for all of its faults.

Today, he checks in with a running commentary of his most recent adventure to Spain to play for some Spanish league team. I've always hankered for the Rockets to carry Shirley on their roster, for no reason other than the brilliant and witty insight Shirley would bring us. It's hilarious enough to read about his insights on other teams, but to read his takes on my team would just be unreal.
