Generally, what is your opinion of the book?
I've found it incredibly interesting, detailed, and exacting.
In other news: Greg Anderson, prominently featured in Game of Shadows was released from jail yesterday for refusing to testify and he has said that he will NOT testify.
Now, more specifically: Has anyone else seen the press conference given by Barry Bonds' attorney yesterday where he directly quotes--and he emphasized this point multiple times--Barry as saying, "Hearing about Greg getting out makes my day. I don't care if they indict me today, tomorrow, or next week, all I care about is hearing that Greg has been released."
Maybe the funniest quote yet out of this whole saga considering how Barry constantly verbally abused Anderson and expressed, publically, his overall disdain for Anderson in public on numerous occassions. Barry had no personal associations where he demanded anything other than absolute deference and humility (SEE: Breakdown/unbelievably crazy 'relationship' with Gary Sheffield.)
Watching Barry on SportsCenter chasing Aaron reminds me of something out of The Waste Land.
The Waste Land
The Waste Land is a highly influential 433-line modernist poem by T. S. Eliot. It is perhaps the most famous and most written-about long poem of the 20th century, dealing with the decline of civilization and the impossibility of recovering meaning in life. Despite the alleged obscurity of the poem—its shifts between satire and prophecy, its abrupt and unannounced changes of speaker, location and time, its elegiac but intimidating summoning up of a vast and dissonant range of cultures and literatures—the poem has nonetheless become a familiar touchstone of modern literature. Among its famous phrases are "April is the cruellest month" (its first line); "I will show you fear in a handful of dust"; and "Shantih shantih shantih" (its last line).
