Interrupting another slow offseason day to direct your attention to this beautiful goodbye from one of the very best columnists in New York.

I don’t know him well, but I’m always proud to tell people that I’ve spoken with George Vecsey on several occasions, and he’s always been about as kind a man as you could ever hope to meet. One of the great written voices in the City as well.

It doesn’t take long for a young sports reporter to get over the fact he’s surrounded by great athletes day after day. Being surrounded by writers like Vecsey, though, always feels special and never gets old.

All the best to George in all that comes next.
