Our Top Reads of the Week: Jan.27-Feb.4


Alexa McCarthy

Here at WDBM we’re a nerdy bunch who don’t just report on sports, but consume it every day. We’re always learning and looking to those above us to tell better stories about teams, athletes, coaches and fans. That means we read, a lot. From the high echelons of the New York Times, to the lowly corners of a hockey recruiting blog. For us, it’s all important.

Each week we’ll present to you a short list of the best stuff we’ve been reading, listening and watching.
