Sports fans (and recovering drug addicts) definitely should checkout a copy of this month's Esquire

Journalist Mike Sager, formerly of the Washington Post
and Rolling Stone
, has written a fascinating article about the struggles of a onetime local star football star at Mater Dei and USC.
"Twenty years ago Todd Marinovich was guaranteed to be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever to play the game of football," the story opens. "He was drafted ahead of Brett Favre. Today he's a recovering junkie. Scenes from the chaotic life of a boy never designed to be a man."
