Giving the gift of Go Long this Christmas...
Looking to share this newsletter with a loved one? Here's how you can do it.
Good morning, readers! Hope everyone out there is doing fantastic this Thursday morn.
We’ll get back to filling your inbox with features, Q&As and podcasts, but I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone that you can always gift a Go Long subscription to friends, family and colleagues this holiday.
Your support drives Go Long 100 percent — not advertisers, not corportations — so we cannot thank you enough for spreading the word:
What’s on tap these next few weeks?
— A new “McGinn Files” feature. Our resident Hall-of-Fame sportswriter, Bob McGinn, has written deep dives on Brett Favre and Aaron Donald. Next up? A detailed look at the rise of NFL linebacker-turned-head coach Mike Vrabel. The Titans coach once said he’d, uh, eliminate a certain body part to win a Super Bowl. His team will have a realistic shot at a ring this year, too.
McGinn has talked to everyone who knows Vrabel best for a unique portrait of the man.
— What’s Cleveland’s gameplan at quarterback? It’s flexible, to say the least. I’ll take a close look at the Baker Mayfield conondrum.
— They Might (Not) Be Giants. How did things turn south in New York?
— More exclusive Zoom Happy Hours. Eric Wood was a lot of fun last week, icymi. We’re going to throw a beer back with Steve Tasker next. The Bills great had something come up next week, but be on the lookout for an alert there soon. Have an idea for a guest? Let me know at email@example.com. This Happy Hour is all about giving you a chance to hang out with an NFL player.
— With press conferences sadly dominating most NFL coverage in 2021, we’ll continue to do everything in our power to be different and hang out with players right in their homes. Fans are the ones pouring millions of dollars into this sport and deserve the most access possible. Not a rehearsed, cliched performance at a podium. That’s why your investment in Go Long will always be put directly back into reporting trips. Soon, I’ll be driving down to Baltimore for another profile on a wild personality I think folks will enjoy.
Thank you, everyone, for reading and listening.
Have the best Christmas season.
