If you don't read Rick Reilly, shame on you.
I've already told you once: whether or not you have any interest in sports, you need to be reading his column on ESPN.com.
Sadly as of yet I don't see a way to subscribe to only his column (which is bi-weekly) via RSS. In the mean time, do as I do and occasionally check back at ESPN.com and see if he's got anything new (it's on the front page). Also, if you ever at the dentist's office and you see a 5-year-old Sports Illustrated lying around, pick it up and turn to the back page. He wrote for them for a long time.
The current piece is on the pro athlete's responsibility to be a role model, highlighting John Elway's unwavering willingness to do so.
I tried to find an excerpt, but you need to read the whole story for any of it to make sense. Go do it- it's encouraging when we're so used to A-Rod-esque downfalls.
