We’re Gonna Sell a Lotta Books, Joe

A short adventure with Donald J. Trump. It’s a Facebook link blow … click on the date. I don’t know why it works like that but, too late to fix it.

This is not — NOT — a political post. But it does involve Donald J. Trump. So take that for what it’s worth. I was…

    Is this one of those “finish the story” contests where we submit our own conclusions? If I’ve learned anything in 46 years, it’s that in real life you can NEVER guess the ending. Other than none of us are getting out of this alive, of course.

    My favorite comment: “I’m surprised your book does not say it is by Joe Posnanski and Donald Trump, or maybe it should be the other way around.”

    So help me, I spent way too much time trying to figure out what on earth a “facebook link blow” was. Obviously it was a facebook link of some kind, but I was trying to determine if it was supposed to be derogatory (for any others slow on the uptake, it was merely supposed to be “below”)

    If this wasn’t Posnanski (who I trust) I would assume this conversation was a caricature of Trump, not an actual call/interview. Trump is nothing but a caricature of himself. He plays himself on TV, runs for elections as himself, and pretty much does and says anything he wants to, while playing the role of Donald Trump. It is hard to imagine a person actually being like that all the time. Surely he goes back to normal when the doors close and the lights go off, right? He can’t actually be that was can he? But I guess he is.

      I have a cousin who knows Trump pretty well. He says that the speeches Trump has been giving lately sound exactly like what my cousin was hearing from him all the time several years ago–except that the speeches leave out all the f-bombs. Take it for what it’s worth….

    Am I the only one who finds that quote disingenuous? There’s a lot of things we don’t ask champions to do. We don’t ask them to go to jail for hitting their fiance/wife/girlfriend/kid. We don’t ask them to pay their taxes. We don’t ask them to be faithful to their spouses. We don’t ask them to stop taking performance enhancing drugs. For the most part, champions get a free pass in nearly every avenue of life. The only thing we consistently ask of them is that they give their all on the field or court or green, and continue to show us things we could never do.

    You ABSOLUTELY ask a champion to putt that ball.
