Editorial Reviews

Review

"Surviving Grady is Red Sox Nation's 'Mystery Science Theater 3000. Brilliant, irreverent, and merciless." -- Stewart O'Nan, author, FAITHFUL

From the Back Cover

"Like most Red Sox fans, we were sick after Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS. Couldn't sleep. Didn't want to eat. Listened for hour after hour as fans lambasted Grady Little and dissected the game on sports radio. Watched with some sense of satisfaction as the Marlins took the World Series and celebrated on the Yankees' turf. But it couldn't keep us from thinking that it should have been us."

After watching the Red Sox' 2003 season come to a bitter end, two fans decided to chronicle the entire 2004 season as a means of channeling their angst and providing an outlet for the inevitable heartbreak. And just when they expected the worst, something glorious happened.

Having discovered the Surviving Grady blog sometime around the beginning of the 2004 season, I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy of this book. And man, it was worth the wait. Reading all those entries again just brought back so many good memories. I HIGHLY reccommend this book to every Red Sox fan. It's absolutely hilarious, full of sharp wit, intense feeling, and Alan Embree robots. Plus, you get to see reactions to the WS victory by various readers of the blog (including me O_O).

Of all the books that have come out since the Red Sox victory, this is one of the true gems. At the risk of sounding like a naggy salesperson...if you're a Red Sox fan, get this book now!

If you followed the sox that magical 2004, you have to read this. Even though you could see a lot of this from the web site its much more comfortable to sit and relax in the recliner and take it all in from relative comfort of that all American throne. When you read of El Bencho, who later in the book is en fuego you will die laughing. Not for those who want a serious read, and you don't have to be a sox fan to appreciate this. You can vividly picture the Boston Irish fanatic from the pages of this book.

Red and Denton have kept me looking forward to reading their blog every morning for a long time now. Their dry wit and satirical take on all things sox is unique and their humor unmatched. It's so much more than baseball talk. Surviving Grady opens the door to a world of talking head warmers, Kevin Millar plopped into the middle of classic literature and Mark Bellhorn lovin, and whats better than that?
