    Re: Asian giant for HC

    [quote user="giantyankee1976"]i dont know if anyone's read Mike's book yet, but i just finished it today.
    in spite of being a Jints fan and borderline homer, it is a great book to read.

    i really do like Stray and this book linda makes him more of a favorite for me.

    i read different parts of Strahan's book... a little self serving...but, not as nearly as much as Barber.</P>


    The chapter on TC...is pretty good for anyone who hates TC. Strahan really does like him.</P>

    i guess. there were times when i thought does he (or Glazer) have to refer to this player or that player as 'All-Pro' or "Pro-bowl" etc.</p>

    but i think it is a good read for 'those people' who think that all these guys do is play a game and that there is nothing more than that. I played HS football as i assume many of us did, and even then, my program was kinda craptastic so i didn't benefit from any really great experiences. In chicago the Catholic League or the suburban schools usually have the best football and baseball programs, the inner city, where i live, usually has the best basketball programs.</p>
    also, i found a lot of what Stray/Glazer wrote gave me fond and not so fond memories of my time in Service.

    On another note i also purchased Roger Director's : I Dream in Blue, Life, Death, and the NY Giants

    hey MJ, how's things. should be a good game tonight. but i may be buying into the hype over your D line a bit too much. id be happy to see a couple sacks though.
