Sort order. Aug 30, Liam rated it liked it. As other reviews have suggested, some absolute drivel alongside some funny, interesting and even moving features. The balance thankfully tilts towards the latter. Jul 30, Mark Suffern rated it it was ok. When it relates quirky football stories it's fine,and the two Dannys have tales to tell,too.
The imaginary bits,however,I didn't like. If it cost you 50p or a quid in a charity shop,it was well worth the money.
Nov 07, Andy Malcolm rated it it was amazing Shelves: football. This book may well be lost on people who have discovered football via Sky TV and the premiership. For the book is not strictly about the game, nor any debates. Another player's urine might do the trick, I suppose, but without a court order and a note from Don Fehr, it's going to be near impossible to come by, and that's before we get to the social stigmas that come from asking around for a willing donor. And while it's true that there's a natural acidity in the call of nature, we're not talking about ridding the palms of freckles or making them look perky for photographs.
We're talking about getting them ready for wielding a bat. Typically, urine is too thin, too transparent for that kind of work; it lacks a certain requisite stoutness. What you need for calluses is something like the distillate of chew spit, reduced over medium-high heat and combined with a tincture of mound dirt. Or the crusted muck of Edgar Martinez's helmet, which when mixed into a protein shake is said to give you a second skin and then some.
You can't settle for the easy clean of urine.

If you want to be a hitter, you have to go the extra mile. Remember George Brett and the pine tar incident? It wasn't pine tar at all; it was droppings from the floor of the horse stalls in his barn. I know what you're thinking: That's disgusting. But let me ask you this: You ever see anyone handle a bat better than George?
Maybe Ted Williams. And how'd Teddy Ballgame get the hands ready? Dipped them in small bowls of liquid nitrogen like he was soaking 'em in Palmolive. Patrick Hruby is a sportswriter for the Washington Times. Eric Neel is a regular columnist for Page 2. Member Name: Password:.
