Berry Tramel’s blog is “must-read” sports journalism

I was catching up on my favorite blogs the other day.

Since I was on The Oklahoman’s sports desk in a former life, I still spend plenty of time catching up with our sports bloggers.

Berry is smart – but we all knew that. I’ve long stated to anyone who would listen that I thought Berry was the best writer I’d ever had the pleasure of working with. I said that when I worked for him on the sports desk. He has enough knowledge and skill that most of us could be working for him, but that would mean he would have less time for what he does better than anyone else — report, analyze and write.

My point is simple: I recommend his blog for all sports fans. Of all the blogs Berry writes (and he does indeed blog just about every single day), his responses to e-mails he has received almost reach “must-read” status.

And I quote:

Here’s a legitimate question. Why are some of these people sports fans? I mean, it’s obvious they’re not happy …..

It’s quality entertainment, even if you don’t agree with him.

Here’s one more quote to emphasize my point:

Ladies and gentlemen, whenever you think OSU has the corner on inferiority complex, go back and read this guy, who has so many self-esteem issues, it would take an army of therapists to straighten him out.

Like I said … quality entertainment.

He responds to e-mails about once a week. Don’t miss the next one.
