Geoff Calkins has been chronicling Memphis and Memphis sports for more than two decades. He is host of "The Geoff Calkins Show" from 9-11 a.m. M-F on 92.9 FM. 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.

Has there ever been a Saturday like this in Memphis? No. There will be 25,000 people in the St. Jude Marathon and another 40,000 or so watching the American Athletic Conference championship game in the afternoon.
