February 14 Varsity Letters: Dave Zirin, Amy K. Nelson, and Jack Dickey

On February 14, Varsity Letters returns to the Gallery at LPR with a night devoted to the stories that fall through the cracks in the mainstream sports media. Varsity Letters veteran and columnist for The Nation Dave Zirin will discuss his new book Game Over: How Politics Has Turned the Sports World Upside Down and anything else that's on his mind. He'll be joined by Amy K. Nelson, a senior correspondent for SB Nation, who recently reported on the Costaco brothers' trove of athlete poster art, as well as Deadspin's Jack Dickey, who will discuss the blockbuster story he co-authored exposing Manti Te'o's non-existent girlfriend.
