Best Editorial Writing 

Terry Pluto

Scene's Terry Pluto Scribbles:

1. Guy's got a nice conversational tone to his prose, which has kept readers coming back to him for decades — both for sports commentary and faith-based perspectives.

2. The Chicago Tribune once called him "perhaps the best American writer of sports books," which is nothing to sneeze at.

3. "I'm not afraid to look simple, because one of the best compliments people give me is that I'm easy to read. They like notes. They like the popcorn," he told us last summer.

4. In a town hellbent on sports coverage, Pluto distinguishes himself from the rest of the pack with a sharp writing style and a kind eye for the vivid life within box scores. For that, we thank him.

Staff Pick: Daniel McGraw
