Hits the nail on the head
Joe Queenan has a unique perspective and he may not appeal to all, but I find him hysterical and dead on the point.
Queenan is a Philly native who has also lived in France, the UK and NYC. He loves his Philly sports teams. This book explores the relationship between the die hard fan and his team, and why men are defined by the teams they root for.
It will have special significance for anyone who roots for Philly or New York teams, in particular the Phillies, Eagles, Mets and Jets. His insight is perfect and humor substantial.

Just not funny...
I love David Sedaris and after reading on SWA's inflight mag that Joe Queenlan was their comedy writer of the year I jumped on this one. I'm crazy about baseball so I started listening expecting the best. I tried twice and simply could not finish it. Maybe all the laughs were packed in the second half, but for now this ranks as the only audible.com book I have not finished. Please jump in and tell me I'm wrong and I'll try a third time!
