B.J. Penn, Bill Walton debut as Bleacher Report writers
It’s a great day for the Bleacher Report Guest Columnist program, as two sports legends both have their first B/R pieces up.
Two-time, two-division MMA champ B.J. Penn will be writing regularly for us, and his first piece is up, with updates on what he’s up to now that he’s stepped away from fighting—baby on the way, taping a TV show and some commentary on Dan Henderson-”Shogun” Rua.
The MMA media is already taking notice of the newest B/R MMA columnist.
And Bill Walton remembers the late UCLA coach John Wooden in a moving slideshow excerpted from the book “Wooden: Basketball & Beyond: The Official UCLA Retrospective.
Walton is an important figure at Bleacher Report. One of the conference rooms in our San Francisco office is named for him, with a painting of his famous Crawdaddy magazine cover photo on the wall.
