How I keep sports interesting.
- •Tyson Wilson / Dungeon Dragon (Tyson Chandler)Because there was a Wilson Chandler on the Knicks. Roared when he made tough plays at the basket. I'm still mad he was traded.
- •Bazinga (Kristaps Porzingis)
- •Duda Day (Lucas Duda)To the tune of Camptown Races: "Duda Duda... all the Duda Day"
(so far) [updated]
- •The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace by Jeff Hobbs (March 2015)Absolutely the best of the year for me, this book destroyed me. It's a truly tragic story. Going in, I knew it was going to end badly, but I still felt punched in the gut and heartbroken.
- •A God In Ruins by Kate Atkinson (August-Sept 2015)A sequel of sorts to Life After Life (which I preferred) that focuses on Ursula's brother Teddy. Atkinson is a master at time-shifting and jumping into different characters, which keeps things interesting.
- •Factory Man by Beth Macy (Jan 2015)Tough tale of a family business and an industry town trying to survive globalization. Some parts dragged a bit (like the "Moby Dick" of furniture manufacturing) but compelling overall.
Saw some great shows this year - in chron order
- •Jack White at MSGWith special guest Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest! Mind blowing.
- •Jazzfest and all over New OrleansMardi Gras Indians, La Santa Cecilia, Tedeschi Trucks Band. Stumbling onto Rebirth Brass Band in the street. Live shows in record stores, parks and museums - too many to count!
- •Foo Fighters at Citi FieldDave Grohl rocked out with a broken leg, sitting on a guitar throne. My ears rang for a couple days but worth it.
