A solid collection from one of America s best long form sportswriters Sports Guy is pretty much everything you d expect from Charles P Pierce it s about sports but it s about a lot too It s about people As this is a collection of sports features there s a number of profiles of athletes They range from the famous ones you and your mom know Larry Bird Allen Iverson Tiger Woods to those you d otherwise never know of like golfer Mike Donald pole vaulter Jeff Hartwig or Alfred Redman basketball coach at the Wyoming Indian High School It s tempting to say the lesser known the subject the better the story his piece on Donald who marginal PGA tour golfer who lost the US open on the final hole is one of the best things hereBut Pierce focuses just as hard on the bigger names too He s able to explain why Allen Iverson is a lot like Larry Bird than you d think He s able to explain the difference between Magic Johnson and Earvin Johnson He was miles ahead of everybody else on Tiger Woods who he depicts as flawed like everybody else years and years before everybody else really noticed The writing here is gorgeous too Pierce is a great wordsmith and whip smart he s able to avoid the easy cliches and cut to the point of what he s writing about Two Tough Mothers is some of the best sportswriting ever and it s not because of anything any athlete does inside the story The only problem I had with this book was it s length most of these pieces appeared in G or Esuire and they re short often too short In a couple of cases they feel like they re only getting going as they end Recommended for sports fans

Pierce ✓ 6 FREE READ FREE DOWNLOAD Sports Guy: In Search of Corkball, Warroad Hockey, Hooters Golf, Tiger Woods, and the Big, Big Game Sser known figures such as Nebraska basketball coach Danny Nee a former Vietnam vet who openly opposed the Gulf War Cool Papa Bell a ballplayer from the Negro Leagues who is ripped off by memorabilia hounds and Mike Donald an obscure golfer on the PGA tour who played the best golf in his life only to lose a tournament by one stroke Pierce. If you want a feel for 1990s sports jump into Charles Pierce s book There s Tiger Woods as a kid a young Shauille O Neal just starting in the pros at Orlando Allen Iverson Eric Lindros mom Deion Sanders and his bling in Dallas and Jeff Hartwig the pole vaulter from Jonesboro ArkHe also has some obscure tales about Nebraska baskeball coach Danny Nee and his difficulties with Viet Nam Abe Lemons on his career at Texas and Oklahoma colleges and golfer Mike Donald on struggling on the tourAll in all it s a good book but Pierce seems to do some one trick pony stuff Heavy on the descriptions of the surrounding areas in many of his articles seem to distract rather than paint the pictures of the scene And doing it once in a while is okay but constantly I know Oklahoma is dusty I know there its desperate on the Hooters golf tour Pierce also falls back on writing at least of couple of stories as if they are Biblical It s a fun book that takes the reader back to the sports days of the 1990s and if read sporadically and not continually it should be enjoyable
