One on One with Buzz Bissinger

He’s known for giving an insider’s in-depth look at sports; Cardinals baseball strategy with Three Nights in August (when he told the story of the 2003 three game series between the Cardinals and Cubs from Tony LaRussa’s perspective) and the intensity of high school football in Friday Night Lights. But, recently Buzz Bissinger turned the pen on himself and wrote Father’s Day – a raw look at raising premature twins, one of which has brain damage. In this conversation, Bissinger not only talks about a poignant moment at Six Flags St. Louis featured in that new book, he discusses Cardinal nation (made up of what he calls the “Best fans in baseball”), recent changes in the Cardinals clubhouse (and where he thinks Albert Pujols should’ve went) and the unusual evolution of the care of premature babies. It’s an intriguing talk that has multiple connections to Missouri, especially St. Louis.
