Calkins has been named the best sports columnist in the country five times by the Associated Press sports editors, but still figures his best columns are about the people who make Memphis what it is.

After being arrested for drug possession, former Memphis Tiger Joe Jackson disappeared from public life. Now he’s emerging to begin what he hopes is a comeback.
