SportsPastor’s Top 10 Magazines

When I walk into Barnes and Noble, the manager smiles becuase he knows that I will ring up a hefty bill of the latest and greatest magazines. When we are 30 minutes early for a flight, it is yet another opportunity to ring up a hefty bill of the latest and greatest magazines for reading on the airplane. Yes, I love magazines. As a result, my desk is covered with my favorite leadeship books and now 10 different magazines on topics such as leadership, business, technology, sports, and golf (golf is listed seperately because it is no longer a sport to me – you should see me hack…er…play). From the home office in Sioux City, Iowa, here are the top 10 magazines currently on my desk (also featured in left sidebar):

10. Athlon Sports College Football Preview
(Can we give Arkansas’s McFaddin the Heisman trophy yet?)
09. Athlon Sports Pro Football Preview
(Sunday night has better games but not MNF’s Tony Kornheiser)
08. NFL.com Fantasy Football Magazine
(With the 16th overall pick the Tailgate Tigers select T.J. WhosYourMama)
07. Golf Digest
(Last summer I shot around 85, but this summer I quit before shooting 88)
06. Business 2.0
(If you love the story behind the technology giants, this magazine is for you)
05. Entrepreneur
(As a designer of sports ministries this magazine provides me with start-up insights)
04. ESPN the Magazine
(ESPN has the sports world covered, but the fleece pullover is not needed in Texas)
03. Sports Illustrated
(I would subscribe to this magazine just to read Rick Reilly’s articles on the back page)
02. Mac Life
(Mac Addict finally made it’s way to the States under it’s new name, Mac Life)
01. Mac World
(I’m a Mac, and I’m a PC that exploded and caused the sportspastor to switch to Mac)

Comment by Bill Engeler

I always look forward to Memorial Day as that is the time retailers (including my favorite also, Barnes & Noble) brings out the first of many, many college, pro and fantasy football magazines to be printed that year. Of course, the info within is compiled some time before publication, and the relevance of what the magazines contain and it is dubious how well their predictions actually make sense come the reality of the Fall…well, who cares! Just paging through those publications gets any true football fan fired up for the season ahead.

Loved your reference to “T.J. Who’s Your Mama.” See that commercial on NFL Network a year later and it still cracks me up.
