As the five young writers sat with bated breath, Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post book critic Michael Dirda told them that a life of wordsmithing would bring them pain. One of them would soon win the nation's most lucrative literary award, the Sophie Kerr Prize, and experience a moment of greatness. Dirda spoke to those who lost. "You will feel heartbroken for a while, but if you pursue a literary career, it's best to get used to that feeling," he said. On Tuesday night at the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, Washington College bestowed its annual Sophie Kerr Prize on Tim Marcin, a 22-year-old graduating senior from Wilmington, Del., who hopes to pursue a career in sports journalism.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - So last week I spent six days seated in the cockpit of the engine that is driving sports journalism. I filled in for Mike Wilbon and Tony Kornheiser on the hit TV show Pardon The Interruption. It wasn't the first time I'd done the show, but it was my longest engagement and first in about three years. The show hasn't changed much, but its impact on my profession has certainly increased. I learned a lot and came to some realizations that might be enlightening. ESPN, the network that created and carries PTI, is obviously the worldwide leader in sports, and PTI has quickly developed into the new face of sports journalism.

Over the past few years, sports journalism has become as ripe a topic for discussion as the games and sports personalities the journalists cover. The trend started with talk radio but really picked up steam when some cyber caveman invented the first blog. A fair amount of blogging, regardless of the subject matter, focuses on other media -- print, broadcast and even cyber -- because many bloggers are motivated by what they perceive as a disconnect between institutional media and the public that media is supposed to serve.
