A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein.

–Joe Theismann

As baseball's postseason and football's regular season fast approach, the Einsteins are looking back, mining the past for lessons relevant today. This month, we question the nature of sports tragedy, uncover how mythic heroes are created, experience how a community and an athlete shape each other, try to cope with traditions both great and terrible, and advocate for a messy racial past. The past may be prelude but that doesn't make it any less fun to read. Bring on September: Norman Einstein's 16 is here!

Norman Einstein's Sports & Rocket Science Monthly is published the first weekday of every month. The magazine brings you diverse talent dishing on sports from a variety of perspectives. In long form and freeform, our writers, photographers, and artists get up-close and personal to their subjects, attacking sports from unique angles you won't find in other magazines or on other websites.

The Einsteins don't traffic in speculation. We deliver stories. Punditry is for those other geniuses. We come to play.
