  1. He apparently keeps a very detailed daily journal– I posted about him here, with quotes from an interview about his notebook use. They never said it was a Moleskine!

  2. Speedmaster says:

    Good find! Singletary is one of the genuine good guys in football, and was a phenomenal player as well.

  3. Winston Smith says:

    Below are the first two paragraphs of a Singletary profile in ESPN Magazine:

    “Mike Singletary stands alone in the middle of two fields of action, a still life amid the chaos. A wooden cross rests on his chest, sunglasses hide his eyes and he holds his notebook in his hands, always. These are his tools, the instruments of his new profession.

    The notebook is a Moleskine, with a black leather cover and rounded corners and a collection of crisp, white, acid-free pages inside. It has the same texture as a football, which gives him something to do with his hands. Vincent van Gogh used a similar notebook; so did Hemingway and Picasso. It’s an artist’s notebook, not for someone who scribbles. A man who uses a Moleskine tucks in his shirts.”
