Read the book

 

cmon, man thats a predictable response. Maybe its harsh of me to say that without knowing the story but I still dont want to take the time knowing anything about that just as I dont want to hear anymore stories about babies in trash cans.

 

I would rather either be enjoying myself or making myself or someone else better at something.

 

edit: its great when you can do all three at the same time.

I read this book about 5 years ago and had forgotten about it. Good book, powerful crazy poo. Read it.

 

Looking forward to finishing it - already hard to put down, fascinating.

Sounds similar to Josh Hamiltons story, except he made a comeback.

Fairly similar in regards to overcoming addiction - but Jason's drug habits would put Josh's to shame. Pretty intense, punch-you-right-in-face type tone to the narrative. Jason Peter was like the Hunter S. Thompson of football.

For you Huddlers that read (which is probably 3% of you), has anyone read Jason Peters (Panthers 1st round pick in 1998) memoir Hero of the Underground: My Journey Down To Heroin & Back

 

Though I have not yet finished, so far the book is very riveting, explicit, and somewhat depressing. An interesting peek into the personal demons of a professional athlete (similar to the Chris Herren story of the Boston Celtics.) Bummer that Jason never panned out for us, but so far I have an odd, new-found respect for the man.

 

*It's the offseason, I thought now would be a good time to bring this up out of curiosity.  

you learned all that by a book? you must be a wizard.

I interviewed Jason Peter in the locker room at Panther Stadium after they lost against the Steve Young led 49ers in overtime off a terrible Steve Buerlien fumbled snap.

Since my friend worked for a TV station he got two press passes and gave me one...got to hang with Sorenson and the WFNZ guys in the press box. I had on field access with two minutes left in the 4th and overtime and full access to the lockers after the game.

Walked up on a full frontal William Floyd getting his undies on...give the dude a minute!

Anyways I tried to get Jason Peter to answer a question about how he is not utilized well in a 3-4 and would prefer to go to a 4-3 to best utilze his skills. He started to answer and in mid sentence said "whoah...who are you again?..." " i cant get into it about the coaches..man..

Almost thought he was about to break some smack on the Seifert gang!

I got MLB Michael Barrow to say he is going home to kick the dog.. Good stuff. I will contact my friend to see if he has access to that footage still..supposed to get a copy back ..13ish years too lateish?!

I thought Seifert was 4-3 as soon as h got here.. regardless that's pretty cool.

Then there is the story of our Stadium announcer, Jon Robinson. http://en.wikipedia....son_(announcer)

Our teams history is full of some fuged up poo.

I randomly came across it in the bargain section at Barnes and Noble and picked it up mostly because I like memoirs and autobiographies.  I really enjoyed the book and found it interesting to learn about how athletic his whole family was since I really didn't have much background info on him.  Also, I'm from Jersey so I was surprised to learn that he's from Middletown!

No it was still 3-4 with Mike Fox at Nose and Kevin Greene having a poor year...last year for it I think.

This was the Anthony Johnson 1000yrd year...maybe..everything is blurry now lol.

I was not star struck until Kevin Greene walked out ito the locker room..he was larger than life and Mike Fox was huuuge!

For you Huddlers that read (which is probably 3% of you),

When Mom was reading this to me, she said that I should be offended by this comment.  However, I was not good at math either.

Mike Fox's last season was 1998. Seifert's first was 99.

 

Anthony's Johnson's 1000 yard season was 96.

 

Regardless, that's pretty cool :)

So it is very blurry lol..Mike Fox and Anthony Johnson were definitely there Bar none Floyd, KGreene, Barrow n Mike Fox.

So possibly pre Seifert(just does not seem This long ago!!) so it makes more sense that it was a 3-4. I associate Buerlien with Seifert.

-I finally quit being lazy: 1998 Biakabutuka 2nd year platooning with Anthony Johnson after AJ's 1000yrd season. Sorry I was at UNCC so really blurry time..
http://www.pro-footb...99812060car.htm

I was on field pre game Niners side and tried to say hello to Jerry Rice, who was having none of that...RB Terry Kirby and clearly remember Steve Marriuchi yelling at Ty Detmer in warm ups as he skipped a pass to Terry Kirby on a HB wheel route and Marriuci lost it on Detmer! "this is why your a Backup!!" "Hit his hands with the ball!!" clipboard slammed to the ground before all this..

Oh yeah there was a female reporter interviewing Biakabutuka for a soccer magazine bc Timmy B was a really good soccer player.

It was a good book. Jerry Richardson seems like a good guy in it. Its messed up how his brother broke his neck. It is funny all the poo he talked about Lou Holtz after he forgot about his brother. I like books like this that are about people and are relevant to my life in certain ways.
