I make it a point of reading Lowell Cohn of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat.
Cohn writes sports. He could just as easily write about international relations or politics, that's how pithy a fellow like Cohn is, (he has a PhD from Stanford). He's also a food and wine aficionado with blog posts at Cohn Zone every now and then delving in Cabernet prose. If you're a Cohn Zone regular like me, you look forward to it.
But mostly, Lowell is a sports writer and blogger. I remember his early writing at the Chronicle. He was close to Bill Walsh and used that pull to provide readers with the personal inner workings of the late 49ers coach ways and means. It was great reading.
Cohn was a frequent critic of the late Al Davis, but that was besides the point. I loved it when he'd write about Davis, the Raiders dysfunctional state, and Al's legendary press conferences. Brooklyn Al and Brooklyn Lowell, what a combo.
Cohn writes a lot about boxing too. I want to ask him some questions about that sport. I also want to ask Lowell about what he thinks of Jim Harbaugh. Tiger Woods. Bill Russell too. You too can ask Lowell about sports, food, life, maybe what he thinks is the best deli in NY.
Cohn will guest on "Lieberman Live" this Sunday night from 9-9: 30 PM on my radio show.
