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.

Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said he didn’t know how the team came back twice to beat the Timberwolves in Game 3. Could that be because he didn’t realize all the totally loony things Memphis fans were doing to get the victory?
