Ed Sherman

Apparently there is only a single postage stamp size photo of Ed Sherman on the internet. (At least that’s all this illustrator could find.)

In this week’s TDQ Q&A, we talk to sportswriter Ed Sherman. Ed talks to us about his time covering sports in Chicago, his website, The Sherman Report and how he continually re-lives the 1997 Masters tournament. Here is this week’s TDQ Q&A with sportswriter Ed Sherman:
