It's been a few months since I last posted something from Joe Posnanski, but it's certainly not for a lack of quality words published by him... either for Sports Illustrated or on his blog.
Really, I'm perpetually amazed at the volume of work he publishes and frequently find writing that strike a cord. Two blog posts that stood out to me lately were Honesty and then Daughters and Roller Skating a few weeks later.
Whereas one piece centered around a Vietnam Vet and the other Posnanski's 6 year old daughter, both pieces traffic in what can be generically called the Human Element. Being true to yourself and others, finding your way as a kid and parent... each thing important and written about very eloquently by Posnanski.
