My latest fan letter


The letter:

I just watched part of the interview you did on Comcast Sportsnet Phiily about your new book concerning Roger Clemens. I could care less about about Clemsens but I do remember you from your book about the Cowboys! Seems to me you are a bit of a leach or a maggot! You latch on to bullshit….yes bullshit and dog people with a bunch of crappy stories to help in your own financial gain. That’s why you wrote about Clemens and the Cowboys…because if you wrote about Jeff Weaver or the Seattle Seahawks nobody would care!!! What I found amusing was Oscar the Grouch look alike Barkann commenting on Emmitt never reading your trash and if Clemens has as well…WHY IN THE HELL WOULD THEY READ THAT SHIT????!!!!! You are just another bald unathletic pussy who seems to make his pecker hard dogging people! You are no better than that fag Skip Bayless! Jealous bitches!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The response:

Thank you very much for the letter, RE: my hard pecker. Although I obviously don’t agree with the points, I appreciate you taking the time to write in and express your opinion. No harm in that.

PS: RE: your point on Jeff Weaver or the Seattle Seahawks. You’re 100% right. Why would I write books nobody wants to read?

  1. Yes, because writing about subjects nobody cares about is a very effective way to sell books and make money… or rather you just really, really enjoy writing so much that you’re willing to do it about boring subjects for no money…

    The difference between “dogging people” and actually thoroughly researching a story and presenting all sides of it seems to be sadly lost on many people.

  2. Everyone thinks they can write. Only a few actually do it. And only fewer get published. The stories you tell are interesting. I enjoy reading them. If I wanted to read Plato, I’d read Plato. I pick up a Pearlman, I want a story. And most of yours are good. My only question is what are you working on next?
