--I make a nice tomato sauce, using bell peppers and vinegar.--Our family used to have two waverunners that I drove too wildly and served as a poor example for my sons, who also drove too wildly.

He is also smarter than I even though he's not yet 3.--My golf game is just good enough to be ultimately disappointing.--I count myself lucky to have been covering the NBA in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Very interesting and enjoyable look back at the Dream Team. Lots of in depth interviews with all the players really helped flesh out the narrative and the conversational style of the writing made it an extremely fast read.
