I've been lurking here for weeks, working my ass off with lots of OT at work, killer statistics class, and reading forum comments to wake up in the morning before I get my hour long Sigler junkie fix on my commute.
So I just finished Rookie on my way home today, and I remembered seeing this thread and I had to run home like a little girl and comment. I never wanted to know anything about football until 4+ years ago when I started dating a chemical engineering professor at Auburn University (WAR DAMN EAGLE BABY!!!!) Now, I have been through 4 of Scott's books via podcast in the last 2 months or so, saving this one for last because Starter just came out and I wanted to do them back to back.
Still, I wasn't convinced that fictional alien football was for me, and I want you to know I put on the first episode, and about a third of the way through it, it was a little tough to keep listening. But I said to myself, "What kind of junkie are you? You know Scott's got the good shit!" By the time Pine's troubles came to light, I was finding reasons to leave work so I could listen to a few minutes more while I went to the back, store, etc for work. Listening to the playoff game today, I was cheering in my car!
If you call yourself a real junkie, take a hit. I promise you'll love it!
