Sports writing legend Frank Deford returned to his former longtime hometown tonight to promote his latest book, opining on a wide range of subjects ranging from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to coach molesters.

Addressing a Westport Library audience, the popular NPR commentator and Sports Illustrated columnist read excerpts from his latest tome, “I’d Know That Voice Anywhere,” one of 19 books he has authored, and took questions.

Of the NFL and Goodell, he said: ‘He is an ordinary man in an very important position. He looks like a slick selling 76 trombones.”

As to the Super Bowl: “I can’t understand why 16,000 people are recruited to help at the Super Bowl as volunteer,” he said.
