Deconstructing Sweetness: The Truth Behind The Life Of Walter Payton

When I first learned that Jeff Pearlman wrote a book that exposed a dark side to the legendary Walter Payton I was to say the least disappointed. I was even a little offended. Here’s a sports figure that managed to make it through without scandal and without controversy. A sports figure that most likely counts the Super Bowl Shuffle as his biggest embarrassment. And now after his passing you dredge up the demons. It seemed unfair.

Yet after speaking to Jeff I understand why he did it and think he may have uncovered a trend that many of us never considered. It’s worth your time. My conversation with Sweetness author Jeff Pearlman.
