I’ve been struggling for a couple of days to put into words just how excited I am about reading the ESPN oral history, “Those Guys Have All The Fun.” I think I’ve finally figured it out. I’m not excited enough to fantasize about this book while masturbating, but, if during that “process” the book flashed into my mind, I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t knock me off task.
So, with that horrible image in your head, let’s talk about how we’re going to handle this monumental literary event. We’re bringing back the SCP Book Club. But, as opposed to our efforts to chronicle “What It Takes,” this will not be a one man task. Starting next Tuesday, we’ll begin posting a weekly discussion of “Those Guys Have All The Fun,” featuring some of this site’s most loyal readers, John, from 200 Miles From The Citi, commenter and one time contributor Dave in Brighton (who will soon be Dave in Ann Arbor,) and commenter Scott Salley (not his real name,) who, for the sake of simplicity, we’re just going to call Kevin.
We’re also open to other participants. Feel free to add your thoughts into the comments section or, if you want to get more involved, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, go out tomorrow, buy the book and start reading. We’ve got a lot to talk about.
