O'Meara's work has appeared in The Good Men Project, The Blood-Horse, Horse Race Insider.com and Trail Runner Magazine.
He's putting together a 10-year retrospective on Smarty Jones and is working on a memoir about his father and baseball titled "The Last Championship".
Dear Brendan, in your recent article titled 'Will French Always Elude Djokovic?' you have mentioned that in 2009 Robin Soderling beat Nadal in the semi-finals of Roland Garros. This is not correct since he beat Nadal in the 4th round of the tournament that year. Nice article otherwise!
Brendan, you have a serious factual error in your figure skating coverage. Plushenko did NOT win the men's short program in the team event. He came in 2nd to a brilliant Japanese skater! Get your facts straight please!
