Drinking, singing, the late great Harry Crews, and the greatest game on Earth. This is a great sports memoir, getting to the heart of what makes rugby and ruggers unique, while telling Atkinson’s personal story of growth and discovery.  A must for anyone who’s ever rucked, scrummed, and mauled, and an interesting, insightful memoir of sport and writing for everyone else.

Baseball is a game of numbers, but in Robinson’s hands it’s also a game of endlessly fascinating infographics. This is the kind of book that makes you wish for a rainy Saturday that you can spend flipping back and forth. Interleague play, infield positioning, Molina brothers, retired numbers, stadium elevations. Travel schedules, international leagues, Jackie Robinson, PEDs.  Be careful opening it up, there’s a 2 hour limit in the parking lot.
