About the Author
Calkins grew up as the eighth of nine children on a small farm outside Buffalo, New York. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College and Harvard Law School, and practiced law in Washington, D.C. for three years before deciding - at age 31 - that he'd have more fun, and have more of an impact, as a sports columnist. Calkins worked at The Anniston (AL) Star and The Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel before accepting the columnist job at The Commercial Appeal in 1996. He has three sons (Ben, Andrew and Peter), two amiable Bernese Mountain Dogs and an abiding faith that someday one of the teams of his youth - the Buffalo Bills or Buffalo Sabres - will win a championship.
