Bill Simmons

So I've spent a lot of time reading books about the Red Sox winning the World Series in 2004 (I think at least 6 by this point) and far and away the best is Bill Simmon's Now I Can Die in Peace. Simmons might be more familiar to people as the ESPN.com Sportsguy on Page 2, but he is a gem of a writer and commentator, not just on baseball and sports, but on all of popular culture. So, if you have time to kill at work (or at home too), you must check out the Sportsguy Glossary that has so many gems of articles and mailbag responses. Hours and hours of fun!
