The Tale of Reggie And The Speechless Sportswriter

There he stood, standing on a street corner, waiting for a taxi — or perhaps a limo; that would be more of his style — to roll up to the curb and take him away. There I stood, just feet away, looking at him; knowing full well who he was yet unable to bring to …
