A quick plug for my cover story in the new issue of Maisonneuve magazine, a 5,500-word essay on how the relationship between sports fans and their heroes is changing in the Internet age. It’s a piece that I started developing as a writer-in-residence at the Banff Centre, which gave me the luxury of time to think about and research this idea in depth. The article itself isn’t available online, though the opening paragraph is posted — along with a YouTube clip of the 1500m final at the 1996 Canadian Olympic Trials, which was a pretty embarrassing moment for me but significant in terms of the ideas I look at in the article. You’ll have to read the article (in the paper version of the mag) to find out why!
