Over the years Scoop Malinowski’s Biofile interviews have received some surprise praises and compliments from readers and also Biofile subjects. Here are a few samples…

Hello, Just spent the morning reading trough your biofiles page and enjoyed it tremendously….what a way to while away half a day. With the Ipad age its even more interesting as I was able to wiki more deeply into say Jack Dempsey, and then go back and continue exploring for other interesting people, even the ones I thought I didn’t like. What you do is important and will last, Thanks and Regards, –Eric Thomason

“…And thanks again for your interest in featuring her in your column, which is great by the way and always gives you a glimpse into the other side of the hockey players and personalities we all follow.” –Tom Bartsiokas

“I really do hope someday you’ll write a book on Manny Pacquiao, Scoop. I can’t explain it but your journalism style provides a breath of fresh air to an otherwise beaten and rehash topics by other sports journalists. Maybe because of your biofile approach that reveals a little bit something under the athlete’s skin, which provides pleasurable reading.” –Elvin Ventucillo

“You ask great questions.” — Chris Evert, Tennis Hall of Famer

“Damn good questions…” — Gordie Howe

“These are great questions.” –George Foreman, Former Heavyweight champion

‘That’s the most interesting interview I ever did.” –Richard Williams, Tennis coach

“That’s the best interview I ever did. You can put that in there too.” –Troy Polamalu, Pittsburgh Steelers

“What is this? Some kind of offbeat psychological profile?” – Jim Boeheim, Syracuse Basketball coach

“That’s actually the best interview I ever did.” — Brian Lee, Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman

“I was very impressed with the “Olympic Biofile” on page forty-one (41)…I can tell you articles like Biofile are like “gold” to aspiring young people.” – Mal Whitfield, former US Olympic gold medalist in track & field in a letter to Olympian Magazine.

“These are the best questions I’ve been asked all day.” — NASCAR driver Tony Stewart, after an auto racing reporter mocked my Biofile questions at a NASCAR media event at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City
