LONG BOMB is the BOMB,
This review is from: Long Bomb: How the XFL Became TV's Biggest Fiasco (Hardcover)
I'll be honest with you. My first thought here was "who wants to read a book about the xfl?" But the story of this big car wreck is so entertaining, and the underlying insights about the American sports/media machine are so dead on, that I think anyone with any interst at all in books about sports or TV should own this book.
Forrest is funny without being obnoxious and the material he has to work with is fantastic--Ventura, Butkus, McMahon, Ebersol. He also got lucky. Who knew that the local runningback he was paling around with would turn out to be HE HATE ME, the one thing in the league that worked?
Anyway, buy this book. You won't be dissappointed.
