I'm a Basement Dwelling Blogger Who Keeps His Word

A few months ago, I promised friend of the blog Jeff Pearlman I would plug his new book. It's called "Boys Will Be Boys." It's about the Dallas Cowboys of the 1990s. And it's available today. Although Jeff is a pretty cool guy, the real reason I made this promise was because I hoped it would induce him to offer me a free copy of the book before it hit shelves. Alas, that didn't happen and as a result I obviously haven't read it yet. So how can I still plug it? Easy. Kissing Suzy Kolber has done my work for me. And if reading their preview doesn't make you want to drop some money on the book and read the whole thing, well, I don't know what to tell you. Obviously you're either a tightwad or you don't like things that are funny.

Also, I forgot to link them when I initially made the post, but my implication from yesterday night that Rex Grossman is the kind of QB who thinks any pass not thrown into the end zone is for pussies isn't my own idea. It also came from KSK.

A burrito from Chipotle, not any of the other shitty places like Qdoba or Moe's.

I'm confused. Didn't Jeff Pearlman have his head chopped off by Islamic terrorists?


TOO SOON?

Let me start by saying that I appreciate your comments and find them funny. That being said:

I don't know if I'd say it's "too soon," per se. However, I'd probably say that the comedic payoff doesn't really justify the macabre nature of the Daniel Pearl reference.

Just my opinion though.

Deadspin has a long excerpt from Pearlman's book up today. I hate the Cowboys, but it seems like a really good read.
