There are really two games, the one you see and the one you don't. The way I see it, the best way to use access to both worlds is to illuminate and reveal, not idolize and adore. It's better to be wrong than to be played for a fool. a Colin Cowherd In this age of billion dollar athletic marketing campaigns, afeel gooda philosophy with no connection to reality, and a Sports Media echo chamber thatas all too eager swallow whatever idiotic notion happens to be in vogue at the moment, itas tough to find people who arenat afraid to say what theyare really thinking. But thatas where Colin Cowherd comes in. As his millions of fans on ESPN Radio and ESPNU already know, Colin is the rare sports analyst whoas brave (or crazy) enough to speak his mindaeven if it pisses some people off. Of course, it helps that a lot of what Colin has to say is simply hilarious. Lots of writers can tell you about Bostonas storied sports history. But how many can tell you why the city of Boston is Americaas five year old? Lots of writers will brag about the stuff they got right, but how many will happily list all the calls they got completely and utterly wrong? Whether heas pointing out the stupidity of conspiracy theories, explaining why media bias isnat nearly as big a deal as many assume, or calling out those who prize short term wins over sustainability, Colin is smart, thought-provoking, and laugh-out-loud funny. Some of the questions heas not afraid to ask in You Herd Me! include: Is Tiger Woods really a sex addictaor does he just have good PR? Is awork-life balancea really the ideal we should all strive foraor is that just a way for people feel better about mediocrity? Is talent really all itas cracked up to beaor can too much talent actually be counterproductive? Is the X games really a sportaor would we all be better off if we admitted itas something else entirely? Is Hell really a supernatural place of fire and brimstoneaor is it actually just another word for living in Tampa? Unapologetically entertaining and packed with behind-the-scenes insights you wonat get anywhere else, You Herd Me! is unlike any other sports book ever written.But thatas where Colin Cowherd comes in. As his millions of fans on ESPN Radio and ESPNU already know, Colin is the rare sports analyst whoas brave (or crazy) enough to speak his mindaeven if it pisses some people off.
