More than a year ago, the folks at the Daily News decided to conduct an experiment—to try and create a weekly magazine focused on the city’s enduring passion for sports: the fans, the athletes, the stories behind the scores. The result was SportsWeek, which debuted on October 2, 2011 featuring a cover story on Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. To mark our first year, SportsWeek editors put together this collection (see below) of great reads from our first 52 issues.
