the best ending I've ever read.... ( )

I'm a little over Bill Simmons these days; since he moved to LA he's completely lost touch with the Red Sox, and I don't care about any other sport. But this, published shortly after the Red Sox won their first World Series in (x) years, is the best literary celebration of that win.

If you don't know immediately and exactly what x is, you don't need to read this book. ( )

Being a big fan of both Bill Simmons and baseball I found this book delightful. I always enjoy his conversations with his father - they remind me so much of my son and I discussing our Arizona Wildcats and Diamondbacks. My only complaint about the book is the microscopic font used for the footnotes - I have old eyes but this was ridiculous and I gave up trying to read them about halfway through the book ( )

A very funny book written by a die-hard Red Sox fan. He is very self-absorbed and doesn't respect women that much, but it is a very funny read. ( )

Billy Simmons's writing is a little self-indulgent for me, but it was nice to relive the 2004 season. Best part was his footnote about Afleet Alex. ( )
