Franchise wrote: I just picked up the Pillman book and the dynamite kid book. I picked up the kid book years ago back before Feinstein had his issues and RF had a kiosk at the Ontario mills mall but I lost it somewhere along the way. I don’t really have plans to read either anytime soon but I was in a buying mood the other night on amazon and got them both.I haven't had the privilege of reading the Plillman book. Pure Dynamite was the first wrestling book I ever read, and til this day, probably in my top 5. The reason I like it best is because Tom buries himself so much, you know he's not bullshitting when it comes to his crazy stories. Great book.

Commander in Cheat. written by sportscaster Rick Reilly

Just finished a chapter where Trump was playing against Tiger Woods. Playing on opposite sides of the course Trump hits ball in water. Tells someone to give him another ball saying Woods didn't see. Hits ball again in water. Walks over to water and gets another ball and drops it on the ground.

hahaha

I'm not very interested in the book, but I heard some of Reilly's interviews when he was promoting it.  Some hilarious stories, if they didn't so aptly describe the pettiness of the most powerful man in the world.

Ready Player One. Really good and kind of scary about a future where everyone is logged into a VR world most of the time. Its actually a fun book to read, very well written and worlds better than the movie (which wasn't bad IMO).

Also read Armada, by the same author. Another really good book.

I've went on a rock biography streak.  I just finished Mick Wall's book on Lemmy released shortly after his death, and now I've begun Bruce Dickinson's autobiography.

I'm about half way through the Jim Ross Slobberknocker book. Major disappointment so far. Ross just quickly glances over all the major storyies, not going into details on much. Almost every chapter is 3 pages or less.

The last half of the JR book wasn't much better. It's worth the read if you can pick it up for under 8bucks.

Just finished Sherlock Holmes and the Autumn of Terror. It's a take on if Sherlock Holmes was tasked to solve the Jack the Ripper murders. It's really well written, and the author does a great job in flipping between modern day (when John Watson's great grandson opens a sealed vault containing unpublished memoirs from Holmes' cases that were deemed too sensitive at the time to be published) and when the murders happened. Highly recommended

George Lentz aka Crusher Bolo recently completed his 4th edition of The Crusher Record Book and it's up to 4,500 results. I'm still reading it.

A local newsman from WGN radio in Chicago, Roger Badesch, has written a book about his various jobs over the years such as PR person for Chicago Mayors, public school teacher, cancer suvivor, and caretaker for his wife.
This is really special to me because I listen to a lot of late night radio in Chicago and have for many years. Roger is a positive and enthusiastic/positive person.

Gil,

Was Roger the WGN guy that got stuck on Lake Shore Drive in the big blizzrd of 2011? I used to listen to Steve and Johnnie quite a bit, along with Nick Digilio. Going way back, I was an Eddie Schwartz guy back in the day. Radio isn't what it used to be.

Reading "Dynamic, Bombastic, Fantastic", a book about the Charlie Finley A's dynasty of the early 70s. The book really focuses on Finley's relationship with the players, manager, and media surrounding the buildup to the '72 to '74 series champs, how he put the team together, and I believe the last third of the book (where I'm at currently) will focus on how it crumbled.

Great stuff. Finley was partial madman, partial genius.  He was cheap as hell, but in a smart way, at least short-term.  Free Agency and the removal of the reserve clause killed his business plan.

I've been working on several other books. I like to have a few different things going at the same time.

Star Wars: Read the second book of the bounty hunters series (Slave Ship). Set in the time just after Return of the Jedi. Boba Fett is kicking ass and taking names, but his biggest rival is Bossk.

Comics: Reading Snyder's Justice League series from 2017-2018 with the Source Wall storyline. Talk about some crazy shit. This takes comics to another level.
