An Accidental Sportswriter

TomDispatch's senior Jock Culture correspondent Robert Lipsyte talks about the first time he met Muhammad Ali. The story is described in more detail in his new memoir, An Accidental Sportswriter, which is on bookshelves now.

For more, you can watch videos in which he declares Billie Jean King the most important sports figure of the 20th Century, and describes the moment he found out his father used to be a jock. You can purchase your own copy of Robert's memoir at, or at any quality bookstore near you.
