Description

???The Red Sox won the World Series.??? ???? To Citizen No. 1 of Red Sox Nation, those seven words meant ???No more ???1918??? chants. No more smug glances from Yankee fans. No more worrying about living an entire life???that??'s 80 years, followed by death???without seeing the Red Sox win a Series.??? But once he was able???finally???to type those life-changing words for ESPN The Magazine, Bill Simmons decided to look back at his Sports Guy columns for the last five years to find out how the miracle came to pass. And that??'s where the trouble began. Why didn???t he see it coming? Why didn???t it happen sooner? (Will it ever happen again?) What was the key deal, the lucky move, the funny bounce, the sign from above that he failed to spot???Pretty soon, The Sports Guy was second-guessing himself, re-writing history, sniping at his own past predictions, pounding the table???that??'s what sports guys do, right? And doing so, he let himself get sidetracked by the suffering of the Boston Bruins, frustrated by the false promise of theCeltics???and driven into a state of ecstasy by the dynastic New England Patriots. The result is Now I Can Die in Peace, a hilarious and fresh, new look some of the best sportswriting in America, with sharp critical commentary (and fresh insights) from the guy who wrote it in the first place.
