Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I wanted to spend [the night] with my family and friends and the people who had supported me, not a bunch of stiffs who were 70-80 years old, telling you that you're acting like a jerk."
--John McEnroe's explanation for skipping the traditional Wimbledon Champion's Dinner in 1981

"I didn't know they allowed cannibalism in the NHL."
--Jim Peplinski after being bitten by Claude Lemieux during a game

"I really think that Terrell has some sort of diagnosable personality disorder...."
--Bob Costas discussing Terrell Owens in an interview with Miami sports journalist Dan Le Batard

Format: Paperback
Just another sports commentator trying to be bigger than the athlete a la Stephan A Smith & the idiot guy on Sports Ceneter (Stuart Scott). A failed athlete taking his sadness out on those more athletically gifted than he is.

The book sucks & is a waste of time. We all know who the jerks are in sports, why read someone else's book about them. Go outside learn a trade or something.

Pretty weak analysis of the majority of situations. One opinion of multiple events and people the write obviously has no more insight of than my grandmother who reads the newspaper as well.

Format: Paperback
I am astonished at what the author considers to be a 'jerk' and what he doesn't. For example he considers George Brett to be a jerk because of a one time gaffe of telling an immature story about defacating in his pants; while Deion Sanders, who has a history of childish 'jerky' behavior involving humiliating Tim McCarver by dumping ice water on him twice while he was working, trashing two time Superbowl winning coach Bill Parcell's career, and several other incidents of immature behavior - Doesn't even make a mention in this book!

He puts John Stockton in there for dirty play??? Right along with OJ Simpson?!?!?!?

To inconsistent for me.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a sports fan I am quick to read books about sports. I enjoyed the indiviual comments about various sports figures, although I was very disappointed with Michael Freeman making fun of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. examples: pg. 58 and last paragraph pg.227
I have come to the conclusion that Michael is the "biggest jerk" in the book for that reason. Also, some of the language was unnecessary and offensive.
