So is the name Frank my ex-boyfriend's pseudonym?

The Writing Life- It may not be poetry, but sportswriting has art, heart and incomparable bar buddies.

By Frank Deford

As a writer, the worst two things that ever happened to me were, number one: I had a happy childhood. Number two: I belong to the absolute and utter majority, bland across the board. I have no personal injustices to rail about. An agent of mine once said to me, "Frank, you are the last of the tall, white, male, WASP, Ivy League, heterosexual writers." ..Perhaps this is why I ended up writing about sports.
