Bill Plaschke

Bill Plaschke has been an L.A. Times columnist since 1996. He has been named national sports columnist of the year seven times by the Associated Press, and twice by the Society of Professional Journalists and National Headliner Awards. He is the author of five books, including a collection of his columns entitled, “Plaschke: Good Sports, Spoil Sports, Foul Ball and Oddballs.’’ Plaschke is also a panelist on the popular ESPN daily talk show, “Around the Horn.’’ For his community service, he has been named Man of the Year by the Los Angeles Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and has received a Pursuit of Justice Award from the California Women’s Law Center. Plaschke has appeared in a movie (“Ali”), a dramatic HBO series (“Luck’’) and, in a crowning cultural moment he still does not quite understand, his name can be found in a rap song “Females Welcome’’ by Asher Roth. In case you were wondering – and he was – “Plaschke” is rhymed with “Great Gatsby.’’
