✏Football for a Buck Book Summary : From a multiple New York Times bestselling author, the rollicking, outrageous, you-can’t-make-this-up story of the USFL The United States Football League—known fondly to millions of sports fans as the USFL—was the last football league to not merely challenge the NFL, but cause its owners and executives to collectively shudder. It spanned three seasons, 1983-85. It secured multiple television deals. It drew millions of fans and launched the careers of legends. But then it died beneath the weight of a particularly egotistical and bombastic owner—a New York businessman named Donald J. Trump. The league featured as many as 18 teams, and included such superstars as Steve Young, Jim Kelly, Herschel Walker, Reggie White, Doug Flutie and Mike Rozier. In Football for a Buck, the dogged reporter and biographer Jeff Pearlman draws on more than four hundred interviews to unearth all the salty, untold stories of one of the craziest sports entities to have ever captivated America. From 1980s drug excess to airplane brawls and player-coach punch outs, to backroom business deals, to some of the most enthralling and revolutionary football ever seen, Pearlman transports readers back in time to this crazy, boozy, audacious, unforgettable era of the game. He shows how fortunes were made and lost on the backs of professional athletes and also how, thirty years ago, Trump was a scoundrel and a spoiler. For fans of Terry Pluto’s Loose Balls or Jim Bouton’s Ball Four and of course Pearlman’s own stranger-than-fiction narratives, Football for a Buck is sports as high entertainment—and a cautionary tale of the dangers of ego and excess.

✏Three Ring Circus Book Summary : The story of the Lakers dynasty from 1996 through 2004, when Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal combined—and collided—to help bring the Lakers three straight championships and restore the franchise as a powerhouse In the history of modern sport, there have never been two high-level teammates who loathed each other the way Shaquille O’Neal loathed Kobe Bryant, and Kobe Bryant loathed Shaquille O’Neal. From public sniping and sparring, to physical altercations and the repeated threats of trade, it was warfare. And yet, despite eight years of infighting and hostility, by turns mediated and encouraged by coach Phil Jackson, the Shaq-Kobe duo resulted in one of the greatest dynasties in NBA history. Together, the two led the Lakers to three straight championships and returned glory and excitement to Los Angeles. In the tradition of Jeff Pearlman’s bestsellers Showtime, Boys Will Be Boys, and The Bad Guys Won, Three-Ring Circus is a rollicking deep dive into one of sports’ most fraught yet successful pairings.

✏Bees Disease The Buck Weedleman Interviews Book Summary : Once upon a time The reclusive, elusive, enigmatic and inspired Buck Weedleman visited a pearl of a city, adjacent to a free port on the Pecatonica River, and surprised three researchers having a drink at the Yellow Creek Inn. Our trip begins there. Weedleman, while considered delusional by some, is perhaps strangely enlightened in his lost reality like a hero in a fairytale blissfully unaware that he exists within the fairytale. I dont know. I can only report what he said in response to a few questions I posed. I found Weedlemans demeanor to be kind yet caustic, authentic yet obstinate, genuine yet hidden from perception, heroic yet villainous, or perhaps just captivating. Buck Weedlemans reality is either that of a true visionary or a deluded parody; Reality or delusion I guess thats for you to decide.

✏The Buck Never Got Here Book Summary : Have you ever wondered how to use a compass? Or build a canoe? Or properly clean a gun, or cast a flyrod, or shoot a muzzle-loading rifle? Well, keep wondering. You won't learn any of that stuff from this book. Kendal Hemphill has been called a cross between Dave Barry and Pat McManus. No subject is too delicate, no politician too insulated, no topic too sensitive to be speared with the arrow of cynicism and barbequed on the backyard pit of sarcasm. If you enjoy camping, hunting, fishing, lying, and passing the buck, this book is for you. If your tastes tend more toward wall-to-wall carpet, central air-conditioning, and room service, this book is for you too. Mark Twain said, 'Humor is the great thing, the saving thing after all.' At times like these, laughter really is the best medicine. Hemphill is here to pass out the placebos. 'Down to earth and grounded are two of the most praiseworthy compliments one can receive. Kendal Hemphill deserves both of these compliments and verily reeks of this aboriginal down and dirty connection to the good mother earth. Take a breather and enjoy Kendal Hemphill.' —Ted Nugent
