Bill Simmons is a sports columnist, author, and podcaster. He currently writes columns and hosts podcasts for Grantland.com, which is affiliated with ESPN.com. He is a former writer for ESPN The Magazine and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. He also has a hand in the 30 for 30 series on ESPN, which someone should buy for me. Please!
I think I once saw him on a flight from Chicago to NYC, but whoever the guy was, he was too busy chomping on his ice cubes to ask him any questions.
