    Gene's book is out

    As much as I didn't want to give him money I gotta see what crap Gene said so I ordered it. Showed up Kindle this morning. Anyone else reading it?

    Re: Gene's book is out

    Sorry, I have better things to read. I know Chris thinks over 50% of fans will read it, but I just don't think it's true. Will read about some of the excerpts that come out of the book, sure. But, read about his life and all the other nonsense, no thank you. He is just not that much of an interesting person for me.

    20% in. He is being fair so far. Nothing ground breaking. He says a lot of good things about Pollard.

    Can we start a spoiler thread? Wow JP goes from the best guy ever to being solely to blame for Chiz not getting a parade on his way out of town.

    Re: Gene's book is out

    I may find the torrent.

    I would prefer if it was an audio book voiced by Gene himself.

    Re: Gene's book is out

    I have a few comments.

    The page size is inadequate. It tends to chafe, and fails to give me the sensation of freshness I need to feel confident. It also is not septic system safe.

    So you're planning to read his book in a few weeks?

    Re: Gene's book is out

    He isn't even interesting when he talks. There's no way he can be interesting when he writes, not to mention I don't need to here him talk about how we should have thrown him a going away party.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Maybe he isn't aware that one is thrown for him every May 19th?

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    He is one boring listen. I agree with you here. If his personality comes out in his book, I can't handle that dullness. I have enough frustrating reading without his personality.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
