I read it a long time ago, so, I do not remember it as well as I would like to......it might seem dated now, as well.......but, I'd still give it a go.

I've read some articles in the Free Press, and he used to pop up in certain national publications, cannot recall which.

I do not like Rick Reilly either, yet many fawn over him...he tries way too hard to be hip and funny. Give me Gary Smith or even Rick Telander over that fool any day.

I happened to meet Albom a few years ago. Believe it or not, he's a BIGGER douche bag in person.

I liked Tuesdays with Morrie. But other than that I'm not a fan of his, particularly after he pretended to be somewhere he wasn't a few years ago. No integrity.

Well, that whole episode was unforgivable, at least to me.

I will not read Tuesdays with Morrie, just no interest, not sure why.

Halberstam is probably the best writer of sports books I've encountered. Summer of 1964 was fantastic, even though I knew how it ended.

Not yet. I was sick for a while and then he was out of town for something. We're supposed to hang out next week though. I'm gonna try to set up a time then.

I'm currently reading a book on semiotics, and did you ever get like 3/4 of the way through a book and be like, "WTF? I cannot tell you think I've read in this book,"? I'm at that phase now. I still don't even fucking know what semiotics is. Something about words and signs. Sucks.

Anyne ever read Umberto Eco? What's his deal?

I've read Eco.

Focault's Pendulum and just about done with The Name of the Rose.

His books are.......dense, let's say.
