Jack McCallum

--I make a nice tomato sauce, using bell peppers and vinegar.
--My book, GOLDEN DAYS, due out in October. It's about the Jerry West-Wilt Chamberlain Lakers who won 33 straight games and the modern Golden State Warriors, the standard for contemporary excellence.
--Our family used to have two waverunners that I drove too wildly and served as a poor example for my sons, who also drove too wildly. We don't have them anymore.
--My wife is smarter than I. One of my sons is a farmer and the other is a professor of sociology and both are also smarter than I.
--I'm not sure what else I would've done if I weren't a journalist. I always dreamed about having a TastyKake route at the Jersey shore. I am at the shore much of the summer but have no route, though I do enjoy Tastykakes.
--I played a lot of pickup basketball until I tore my Achilles. My knees aren't great either.
--Though it is more in the romantic tradition of journalism to have an eccentric two-fingered typing style, I type well, owing to a background in piano and a typing class in high school. I now suck at the piano.
--I will talk about my four grandkids all day. Their names are Oliver, Eudora, Zev and Asa.
--My golf game is just good enough to be ultimately disappointing.
--I count myself lucky to have been covering the NBA in the 1980s and early 2000s.
