Frank Deford And Bob Costas Event At 92Y Was Great

June 7, 2016

Somehow the conversation/interview of the great writer, Frank Deford, conducted by Bob Costas at 92Y was even better than expected and as written here a few days back, I had truly high expectations.

Unfortunately, part of what made the conversation even better than expected were the well stated recollections both Mr. Deford and Mr. Costas had regarding Muhammad Ali.

Talk included and featured Frank Deford’s new book “I Would Know That Voice Anywhere,” a collection of his commentaries the last 25 plus years on NPR.

Costas, a brilliant interviewer, asked some great questions and both men gave evocative, progressive and humorous comments throughout the evening.

Deford talked on many subjects and his wit came through on all of them, whether negative on soccer, mostly negative about editors and his great appreciation of favorite subject, Al McGuire, the late, former college basketball coach and commentator.

I had a chance to say hello to Bob Costas and later was privileged to ask Mr. Deford a few questions at the end of his long work day.

He proved not only accommodating, but gave great insight on his favorite sporting event ever, the 1958 NFL Title game won by his hometown Baltimore Colts vs the New York Giants in the first overtime football game.

Deford gave me information I never knew and I am pretty familiar with that  title tilt, known as “The Greatest Game Ever Played.”

Just as I could not wait for last night’s great event at the 92Y, I can not wait to read Frank Deford’s latest book, “I’d Know That Voice Anywhere.”



92Y once again was the scene of a great event.
