After reading this book, the reader should more readily understand Giamatti’s time in baseball and his actions relating to Pete Rose.

He has no idea, and his brain got broken at some point in the early 2000s. He's a gadfly, nothing more.”

04/06/2022 · “@KJackewicz Like I said, wresting is and has been a dying art form since WCW & ECW closed down. It's an insular industry that aside from brief periods in the 80s & 90s, has no mainstream interest in modern times. Even if all you do is carve out a cottage industry for yourself, that's a win.”

He has no idea how to "grow" anything.”
