So...I just bought D Mac's book. I'm a little embarrassed with how excited I am to read it.

Anyone else planning to read it? I really liked Probie's book, hoping this one's a good read as well.

I'm more excited for Darren McCarty's public service announcement.  What an impact it will have.  "Kids, this is what happens when you make bad decisions (as he steps in front of a mirror)".


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

 

"Some girls are 17 even though they look 25."

I wish I had time to read all these books!  I also didn't know McCarty wrote a book.

D Mac's book was just released, I believe.

I love autobiographies, especially when it's someone that was so enmeshed in something I'm so passionate about. There's always an element of masturbation in autobiographies, and I think the ability to limit that is one of the things that separates "good" bios from "bad" ones. I'm hoping that Mac's co-author is decent and that the book doesn't sully anyone else's rep other than his own...

Autobiographical masturbation? Wait til Joe Thornton comes out with his book.

Hmm. It's an interesting read so far. He comes right out in the introduction and admits he is not currently sober.

I also never knew that he played with Ozzie and Kozlov in minors.

I could have told you that.  I saw him getting loaded in bars in Mt. Pleasant about three times over the last two years.

At least he's honest, and not doing what other celebs with drink problems do (ie lie to the camera).


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
