From the Publisher
"This is the blue-collar, blue highway, blues-in-the-back-of-the-bus side of the American sports obsession. . . . The things [Hemphill] says about baseball, stock car racing, pro wrestling, and even roller derby are very topical, relevant to the evolution of much of this 'rough South' sports entertainment. [This is] the ultimate underdog sports book, by a writer of real gifts and real empathy for these dreamers, losers, and oddballs."
—Hal Crowther, author of cathedrals of Kudzu: A Personal Landscape of the South
