Long-time famed Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Furman Bisher dies at 93. I read his stuff in the Sporting News back in the day. Quite the writer and chronicler of 20th century sports and quite the character.

Lots of great columns out on the net about him. Here are a few:

Read quite a bit of Furmsn from the late 80's on was definitely a voice of the old south, and a more regional view of the sports world
