Come On People: On the Path from Victims to Victors by Bill Cosby and Alvin Poussaint
God Save the Fan: How Preening Sportscasters, Athletes Who Speak in the Third Person, and the Occasional Convicted Quarterback Have Taken the Fun Out of Sports (And How We Can Get It Back)by Deadspin's Will Leitch. Rating: 3.5/5. Hilarious, funny rants that can be appreciated by people like myself who are sports fans but not to the level of the kind of sports junkie who calls into radio shows.
