There are really two games, the one you see and the one you don't. The way I see it, the best way to use access to both worlds is to illuminate and reveal, not idolize and adore. It's better to be wrong than to be played for a fool. â Colin Cowherd
In this age of billion dollar athletic marketing campaigns, âfeel goodâ philosophy with no connection to reality, and a Sports Media echo chamber thatâs all too eager swallow whatever idiotic notion happens to be in vogue at the moment, itâs tough to find people who arenât afraid to say what theyâre really thinking.
But thatâs where Colin Cowherd comes in. As his millions of fans on ESPN Radio and ESPNU already know, Colin is the rare sports analyst whoâs brave (or crazy) enough to speak his mindâeven if it pisses some people off. Of course, it helps that a lot of what Colin has to say is simply hilarious. Lots of writers can tell you about Bostonâs storied sports history. But how many can tell you why the city of Boston is Americaâs five year old? Lots of writers will brag about the stuff they got right, but how many will happily list all the calls they got completely and utterly wrong? Whether heâs pointing out the stupidity of conspiracy theories, explaining why media bias isnât nearly as big a deal as many assume, or calling out those who prize short term wins over sustainability, Colin is smart, thought-provoking, and laugh-out-loud funny. Some of the questions heâs not afraid to ask in You Herd Me! include:
Is Tiger Woods really a sex addictâor does he just have good PR?
Is âwork-life balanceâ really the ideal we should all strive forâor is that just a way for people feel better about mediocrity?
Is talent really all itâs cracked up to beâor can too much talent actually be counterproductive?
Is the X games really a sportâor would we all be better off if we admitted itâs something else entirely?
Is Hell really a supernatural place of fire and brimstoneâor is it actually just another word for living in Tampa?
Unapologetically entertaining and packed with behind-the-scenes insights you wonât get anywhere else, You Herd Me! is unlike any other sports book ever written.
