Better Than Road Rash
Getting back to the subject that Sports Illustrated list of Top 100 Sports Books, I’d like to show off my latest Amazon purchase: Road Swing, by Steve Rushin.
Number 90 on the list, my copy just arrived in the mail yesterday and I can’t wait to dive into it. Essentially the documentation of Rushin’s ultimate sports road trip shortly before his 30th birthday, the author visits some of the most famous, infamous, and, apparently, hilarious sports landmarks around the country.
This is right up my alley, being a sucker for road trip movies, books, and stories. I’ve even written a road story or two for some magazines in my day. Anyway, here’s what SI said about the book:

SI’s Rushin logged 23,658 miles in a rented Nissan Pathfinder for this hilarious travelogue of sports destinations high (the Masters) and low (the Las Vegas restaurant that displays Andre Agassi’s ponytail). A ball-sy Kerouac-ian journey, minus the mind-altering drugs.

Sounds good to me. If you have a favorite line or two from the book, feel free to post them here.
