92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Gary Belsky

image

We feel a deep sense of injustice when we learn that our favorite sports player has cheated or when a bad call goes against our team. But is sports the last field in which we have a clear sense of right and wrong?

On December 16 at 92YTribeca, a panel of the country’s best sports writers and reporters—including ESPN The Magazine editor-at-large (and former editor-in-chief) Gary Belsky, Jeremy Schaap (E:60 senior correspondent), Seth Wickersham (ESPN The Magazine senior writer) and Jane McManus (ESPN W writer)—and 92YTribeca’s Rabbi-in-Residence Dan Ain for a free-wheeling discussion about the big issues in sports. That’s on Friday.
