Before becoming a lawyer, I dreamed of becoming a sportswriter, hopefully the beat writer covering the Phillies for The Daily News. To prepare myself, I read literally everything written by many of the great sportswriters to understand why they were the “best.” Among the columnists I discovered was Jimmy Cannon, a true giant who was known for his New York Daily News commentary on boxing and other sports. His words flowed like literature.

Cannon often began his columns by saying, “Nobody Asked Me, But” and then offered opinions on random topics. Many have emulated Cannon’s style. So here goes my attempt to honor Jimmy Cannon, albeit on the topics of legal ethics and practice management.
