Here's the skinny on this summer's sports books
By DJ Gallo Page 2
Planning a trip to the beach this summer? You'll want to take a good book along with you.
Here are some short reviews of all the newly released sports books.
Granted, I haven't read many of these books. Well, any of these books. But I think it's pretty easy to figure out what each book is about just by knowing the title and author.
Summer sports reading 2008:
"Brett Favre: The Tribute" by Sports Illustrated. This will probably lead to a series like the Hardy Boys books. One for after each time Favre retires.
"Pro Football Prospectus 2008: The Essential Guide to the 2008 Pro Football Season" by Aaron Schatz. Just so you know, this book doesn't come out until July 21. Which is pathetic. Any self-respecting NFL preview publication hits shelves within a week after the Super Bowl.
Chris Coste's name didn't appear in the Mitchell report, so feel free to be inspired.
