ESPN The Magazine to Debut ‘Interview’ Issue

Your FishbowlNY editors are big sports fans, but we have to be honest, most interviews with professional athletes are a bit dry. This should be expected — they’re paid to run fast in brightly colored clothes, slam other men on the ground and hit a ball with a stick, not give complex answers — but somehow we’re always disappointed in what they say.

That’s why we’re excited to read ESPN The Magazine’s first “Interview” issue, which hits newsstands Friday. We’re hoping that the interviews found inside will be more revealing than the stuff we usually hear or read.

From what we know already, there is bound to be plenty of good answers in the issue. The magazine gets Aaron Rodgers to comment on his amazing season, Derrick Rose to explain why he stayed away from league negotiations and much more. Some of the other athletes featured in the Interview issue include Justin Verlander, Ozzie Guillen, Usian BoltBernard Hopkins, Danica Patrick and Ed Reed.
