Blah blah blah......more Rossi bullshit bullshit bullshit. Sure you did Napoleon(oops, I mean Rossi) were these all signed books too? I bet you sold them to either the parking meter lady, or to the imaginary Greek guy who keyed your car? Either way, you're completely full of shit. You're the WC version of Dr Jeff, you've been everywhere, done everything too, just like that other useless asshole. The reason why people dont call you out on so much of your bullshit shorty, is because it's funny to hear you slobber all over yourself, trying to impress us all, & show just how cool you are. Plus, you do this from the comfort of your rent
controlled apartment. Jesus christ, I bet your beastly girlfriend drinks severely whenever she's around you, or wishes she could kill herself nightly, having to listen to your bullshit, on a daily basis? She's got to
be heavily medicated for sure, to listen to you. Rossi: Crimson Mask called, he wants his gimmick back.

I've been reading 11/22/63 by Stephen King...got it for Christmas. I don't read much anymore, but I always liked King and when something new comes out I usually find a way to check it out.

I'm about halfway through...good so far, IMO.

I also picked up "Don Camillo Meets hells Angels" on ebay, so that's next. It's the last Camillo book Guareschi wrote. The books are simple to read and funny in an old-world way. I've been reading them since I found a copy at my grandmothers back when I was a teenager. Good stuff, and I imagine I'll be sorry when I finish this one because there won't be anymore to read from that collection.

lol  You forgot the blargle fargle.

Anyway, glad this was bumped because one of my Christmas presents was "Splading's World Tour" by Mark Lamster and I just started reading it yesterday.  If anyone has any interest at all in 1800s baseball, even if you think you know a lot about it already, this is a must read.  It's all about Albert Spalding setting up a world tour in 1888-1889 to introduce the game to places as far-flung as Cairo and Sydney.  It also doubles as a pretty good biography on Spalding himself, who was kinda the P.T. Barnum of baseball both in terms of success and bluster.  There are some amazing pictures too of the ballplayers at the pyramids of Egypt and other places along the tour.  I'm really enjoying this book so far.

In the past week, I've read Erik Larson's Isaac's Storm and in my occasional quest to make up for the poor literary education I received in school, F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender Is the Night.

Isaac's Storm putters around for 100 pages with below-average writing that's trying to be funny (it's not) and trying to shoehorn a feud as the main point of the book (no one really knows even why the feud started as there's scant evidence). But Larson finally gets himself in gear and the descriptions leading up to, during and after the Galveston hurricane of 1900 are quite good. If you can deal with the Isaac Cline background stuff in the early pages, it's worth it.

Tender Is the Night was pretty darn good, better than what I was expecting, especially for something with as few a-ha moments as it had.

Just finished Steven King's 11/23/63. Outstanding! I recommend it to anyone.

I am currently struggling through Thunderstruck by Eric Larson. It is about Marconi and the invention of Radio and a murder that was apparently famous in the early part of the 20th century. The events appear to be unrelated. Not an easy read.

Some real acrimony here. I sense this is a shoot. Can't we all just get along?

Finished...

Shaq Uncut with Jackie MacMullan - just kinda eh.... get it at the library, don't spend $ on it.

God No by Penn Jillette- Penn tries to spread the gospel of being an atheist... don't agree with many of his views, but still a decent read IMO.

The Best American Sports Writing 2011
- I try to get this collection every year... not bad this year, not as good as other years. If you haven't yet, get the one that was for the Century, it has almost every single important and famous article written in the 20th century... I HIGHLY recommended it.

I'm reading this now too based on your recommendation.  I'm about halfway through so far.  It's pretty good, although I was hoping for more Cap Anson "penis helicopter" stories on the slow boat to Australia.

I should get a kick-back from these publishing companies.  I'm between books right now but I have a few I can start this week.  Hopefully I can recommend another one soon.

My wife bought a few E-Books recently and I decided to swipe a few of them.

Reading now is To Kill a Mockingbird.  I always liked reading that book as a kid and I still love the movie as well
