Joe Buck. Down to earth, average Joe from Anytown, USA? Arrogant, spoiled brat with a self-righteous attitude and a lack of gratitude? Somewhere in between? After reading this book, you might end up thinking Joe Buck is great or you might want to kill him. I'm having a really hard time gauging what I think of the man. Joe presesnts a compelling case why you should love him and why you should hate him.
If you were considering this book, it's time to call an "Audible" (pun intended, pause for laughter). Spend your credit on someone more worthwhile, like Steve Young. Now there's a guy you could have a glass of milk with!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes. I always enjoy when a narrator reads their own book. At least they can't say they were misquoted.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Lucky Bastard?
When he told about how that comedy guy Lange came on his showed and made him feel like Little Bo Peep.
Have you listened to any of Joe Buck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Joe Buck is always a good listen so long as he doesn't destroy his voice unintentionally.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
"Hi, I'm Joe Buck...but not from Midnight Cowboy...but I have as much money as he does...wanna shag?" That would be my tag line.
Any additional comments?
Still waiting for a memorable call but don't worry kid, you got time...

His startling self obsession; his craven dependence on his long dead papa is matched only by his toe-curling immaturity as he "falls for" his second wife and needs to rush to his "friends" to share his troubled thoughts with. And find the much needed reassurance they will offer. God how they must dread his car creeping up their drive. Leaves a nasty taste in the mouth. And I love his NFL commentary. So I was very disappointed.
