This isn't about sports, but Josh Marshall is about as smart and talented of a player (and businessperson) in media as I know -- someone whose opinion and work I totally respect and admire.
He turns 39 today; I turn 35 tomorrow. His post about his birthday is one of those "wish-I-wrote-that" or "yeah-what-he-said" things that will make my own attempts ring shallow. But he really captures the essence of the impact of fatherhood -- particularly new fatherhood -- on your life.
Here's his post. It's a must-read.
