Props to CP's Ben Polk from WSJ
You never know who may be reading your work. We learned that this morning when we stumbled across props for City Pages basketball writer Ben Polk on the Wall Street Journal's blog.
There's not usually much occasion to link to game stories about the ultra-moribund Minnesota Timberwolves in this space, which is why -- despite the fact that his pieces are consistently among the very best basketball writing appearing on the web -- you seldom see anything in this space from Benjamin Polk of the Minneapolis City Pages. That said, your Fixer always goes out of his way to read Polk's stuff, and has enjoyed (if that's the word) watching him grapple with the struggles of Minnesota's young squad to adjust to new coach Kurt Rambis's triangle offense.
