Beschreibung

Praise for the work of Dan Jenkins: ...the best sportswriter in America. --Larry King Dan Jenkins is the nearest thing to Ring Lardner this generation has ever seen. No one has captured the essential lunacy of the twentieth-century sports (and TV) scene as accurately and hilariously as this. --Los Angeles Times Dan Jenkins is a comic genius. --Don Imus Dan Jenkins has been among Americas best and funniest sportswriters for more than six decades. --The New York Times Jenkins is hilarious, providing more laughs per page than any other writer in the bidness. --People Pete Wallace, a good old boy from Texas, paid his dues coaching football on obscure campuses in the boondocks of America until he landed the athletic directors job at Western Ohio University. For 15 years, he has steadily and skillfully guided the school into the high society of major college sports. But now Pete, fed up with politically correct campus culture and babysitting fragile egos, is retiring from the arms race. As he waits for the universitys board of trustees to act on his early retirement package, he reflects on his career, the people hes come across, and what life will be like in retirement. Petes story is told in Jenkinss unmistakable, raucous, old-school style, and its full of colorful, absurd, and downright crazy characters--from clueless trustees and busybody protestors to prima donna football coaches and booster club pests. Stick a Fork in Me is a rollicking, no-holds-barred tour of the world of big-time college sports.

Klappentext

Praise for the work of Dan Jenkins:

"...the best sportswriter in America." --Larry King

"Dan Jenkins is the nearest thing to Ring Lardner this generation has ever seen. No one has captured the essential lunacy of the twentieth-century sports (and TV) scene as accurately and hilariously as this." --Los Angeles Times

"Dan Jenkins is a comic genius." --Don Imus

"Dan Jenkins has been among America's best and funniest sportswriters for more than six decades." --The New York Times

"Jenkins is hilarious, providing more laughs per page than any other writer in the 'bidness.'" --People

Pete Wallace, a good old boy from Texas, paid his dues coaching football on obscure campuses in the boondocks of America until he landed the athletic director's job at Western Ohio University. For 15 years, he has steadily and skillfully guided the school into the high society of major college sports.

But now Pete, fed up with politically correct campus culture and babysitting fragile egos, is retiring from the "arms race." As he waits for the university's board of trustees to act on his early retirement package, he reflects on his career, the people he's come across, and what life will be like in retirement.

Pete's story is told in Jenkins's unmistakable, raucous, old-school style, and it's full of colorful, absurd, and downright crazy characters--from clueless trustees and busybody protestors to prima donna football coaches and booster club pests. Stick a Fork in Me is a rollicking, no-holds-barred tour of the world of big-time college sports.
