Danica Patrick, Sue Bird, Charles Barkley, WatchDog
Deitsch asked some "interesting people" to predict the top sports story of the second half of 2008.
Turns out I rank in that category, along with Charles Barkley, Danica Patrick and Syosset's own Sue Bird.
Syosset has produced an amazing number of our nation's leading citizens, from Bird to Chris Russo to Judd Apatow to Natalie Portman to NFL p.r. honcho to Greg Aiello to Washington Post sports media scribe Len Shapiro to Mrs. WatchDog's best friend from college.
Not sure what it is about that town. What has Northport produced? Patti LuPone, Edie Falco, me, um . . . Bobby LuPone? NASCAR driver Steve Park? Can I get some help here?
I went to East Northport Junior High with 1986 U.S. Open golf champ Jane Geddes, but she moved away before high school. I think she went to Florida for the weather.
