OH, HERSCHEL

SO I FINISHED THE HERSCHEL WALKER BOOK. I AM STILL NOT 100% CLEAR ON THE DEFINITIVE ESSENCE OF MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES, BUT I DO KNOW SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST DIFFERENT. AND WHILE MR. WALKER IS NOT A GREAT WRITER, HE IS ONE OF THE MOST INTENSE MINDS I HAVE EVER BEEN EXPOSED TO IN LONG FORM. HE EATS ONE MEAL A DAY, DOES 1,000 PUSH-UPS, 1,000 SIT-UPS. HE FLIPS COINS FOR MAJOR DECISIONS, TAKES KARATE AND BALLET, STUDIES WARFARE, STREET DANCES, THINKS OF QUITTING GEORGIA FOR THE MARINES, PUSHES A BOBSLED IN THE OLYMPICS, HANGS WITH THE DONALD, ETC. HE IS JUST OUT THERE AND MORE THAN ANYTHING HAS AN OTHERWORLDLY INTENSITY AND FOCUS THAT BAFFLES EVEN HIS MIND. VERY DISTURBING THAT HE PLAYED RUSSIAN ROULETTE AND SWEET AND CANDID IN HIS REMORSE ABOUT CHEATING ON HIS EX-WIFE. OVERALL, FAIRLY WELL-WRITTEN FOR AN ATHLETE’S BOOK AND AN INTERESTING EXAMINATION OF A LIFE WAY, WAY OFF THE BEATEN PATH OF NORMALCY. I LOVE HIM NO LESS AFTER THE READ YET REALLY GET HOW UTTERLY BIZARRE HIS LIFE HAS BEEN. AND HE IS THE GREATEST COLLEGE PLAYER OF ALL TIME!!!
