My good friend and former roommate Jeff Pearlman recently penned a biography of Bears great Walter Payton called (appropriately enough) “Sweetness.” It is available for pre-order from Amazon here. I haven’t gotten a chance to read it yet, but judging from Jeff’s other works (on the ‘86 Mets, the Dallas Cowboys, Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds), and things we talked about during the process, I expect it to be nothing short of amazing. Today would have been Walter Payton’s 57th birthday. Happy birthday, Sweetness.
