Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
“Rick Reilly is one of the funniest humans on the planet, an indescribable amalgam of Dave Barry, Jim Murray, and Lewis Grizzard, with the timing of Jay Leno and the wit of Johnny Carson.”—Publisher’s Weekly
“Don't get started reading this book. It will take three burly men to pull you away from it.”—Bob Costas, NBC commentator for Missing Links
“You don't need to know your bogeys from your birdies to find at least three laughs per page in this novel.”—The New York Times Book Review for Missing Links
“Snappy prose, believable characters, and the funniest take on blue-collar hacking and gambling since Dan Jenkins's The Glory Game at Goat Hill...it's social satire and pure irreverence that keep this story in the groove.”—Los Angeles Times for Missing Links
“Reilly could write about lawn bowling and make it funny, informative, and entertaining. You never know what the next page is going to bring.” —Los Angeles Times for Who’s Your Caddy?
“You might not think the story of a man carrying Tommy Aaron’s golf bag for 18 holes could make you laugh out loud, but you’d be wrong. Who’s Your Caddy? is funny enough to coax a chuckle out of Vijay Singh. A great way to read about the game—and its people, too.” —Charlotte Observer
“You don’t have to know much about golf to get a kick out of this book. Reilly learns a little about golf, and a lot about people.” —The Buffalo News for Who’s Your Caddy?
“[Reilly] knows and delivers a good story when he sees it . . . readers can’t help but be touched by the sheer ingenuity of many of these games and the sheer courage of many of the participants.”—Booklist for Sports from Hell
“Reilly was the closest thing sportswriting ever had to a rock star.” --Chris Chase, USAToday.com
“Often, Reilly’s is so good, it almost is painful for sportswriters like me to read him.” --Ed Sherman, The Sherman Report
“Reilly made you think, made you cry, made you LOL, made you get to know a subject, made you love sports and hate sports and love him and hate him. Above all, he made you read him, every column.” --Jay Marriotti, SportsTalk Florida --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The (in the author’s opinion, and he’s probably right) best of his last 5 years of columns in ESPN: The Magazine have been collected in “Tiger, Meet My Sister ... And Other Things I Probably Shouldn’t Have Said”. Regular readers of that publication have probably seen many – if not all – of these articles before. (Although each has a short postscript talking about follow-ups after it was published that the magazine reader may still want to check out.) Occasional or non-readers of ESPN: The Magazine should definitely consider giving this collection some of their time and attention. .
Let’s start with Lance Armstrong. Reilly was one of Armstrong’s biggest defenders through the years of rumor and innuendo – and once he learned that the cyclist lied to him, Reilly takes the kid gloves off and lets him have it. On the other hand, Reilly managed to make this (definitely) non-Yankee fan root for the organization in pinstripes, talking about how they’d specially arranged a sheltered private box for kids who cannot be exposed to the sun and then arranged a special midnight post-game session on the field for them. AND how Joe Girardi and a few of the players picked a day to accompany a blind fan as she navigated the New York City public transportation system to “watch” her guys play from her usual seat.Read more ›
Truth be told, I decided to select "Tiger, Meet My Sister . . ." after reading a novel of richness, depth and darkness. Great book ("The Goldfinch"), but after reading it I wanted something I thought would be lighter. The title of Reilly's collection grabbed me.
I was very pleasantly surprised. This book was the perfect anecdote to the trip through human despair I had just taken. Reilly's book made me laugh, made me cry and made me happy to be among the incredible human beings he describes while they are being incredible human beings. Somehow, sports was always involved, as the backdrop to the greater good beyond sports.
I loved this book.
