Geoff Calkins

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.

Where were you when Mike Conley nearly beat the Golden State Warriors with a broken face? When Chris Douglas-Roberts threw down that dunk on Kevin Love? The best moments of sports connect us to the places and people we love, as the Buffalo Bills reminded us this week.
