A sportswriter's dreams come trueby Tom Crann, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — Sportswriter Stefan Fatsis got a chance to fulfill what is probably a dream for many of his colleagues. He got to play in the NFL.
For three months, Fatsis was a Denver Bronco. In 2006, he wore the number nine jersey and took the field and trained with the players as a placekicker.
So, what does a sports writer do when he gets a chance like that? He writes a book about it called "A Few Seconds of Panic: A 5-foot-8, 170 pound 43-year-old sportswriter plays in the NFL."
Fatsis writes about the business of sports for the Wall Street Journal."
Fatsis joined "All Things Considered" host Tom Crann to talk about his new book.
