A provocative collection of rants and reflections from Thompson's columns at ESPN.com offers outrageously brilliant insight on topics ranging from the 2000 election to his unconventional take on professional sports ("eliminate the pitcher" to improve Major League Baseball).

I've never been big on sports, just not my scene, so what am I doing reading a collection of sports-related blog posts from ESPN? Because they were written by Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.

Thompson has been a huge influence on me for a long time, so when I stumbled upon this book in a little local bookstore one summer after dinner with my family, I had to snatch it up. I didn't realize at the time that this particular collection was from his sportswriting, but with Thompson you just know it's going to be about more than that.

And this book is. In fact, it's more about his addiction to sports and gambling, as well as the current events that influence everything including sports. These particular missives come from the time of 9/11, just before and the first years after, and seeing Thompson's reactions to the world at that time, knowing where he stands on issues from previous pieces, is an absolute must. He saw things coming that are only now starting to become apparent.

One thing I love about the Gonzo style is the flow the writing has, switching between personal anecdote, brutal confession, and honest criticism. Even sports can take on a wholly unique visage through the eyes of Hunter Thompson. There is also a beautiful tribute to his friend George Plimpton, who passed away in 2003. ( )

It was OK, not up there with his other work ( )

Great typical fun from the Good Doc, Hunter S. Thompson. Interesting to read his old bits and pieces from ESPN.com of 2000-2003 sports, and gambling, and politics (especially after 9.11). ( )

I loved Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in America" when I read it many years ago, and avidly followed "Fear and Loathing: On the Campaign Trail" when it first appeared in Rolling Stone. However, by the time of this work, Thompson had long since lost his edge. It's a sad coda to a brilliant career. Stick with the early material. ( )
