Chances are, the protag would have probably played for the Binghamton Rangers rather than the Pack.
Didn't read it. Didn't even know it was based on an American novel. It's funny to think sometimes how little I know about so many things.

I read almost exclusively non-fiction books, newspapers, magazines etc. Used to read fiction but mostly sci-fi and horror. Same thing with film, actually. A lot of my fave films are documentaries, for example, most of Errol Morris' work.

Current fave American film of all-time remains Goodfellas, to me, a flawless movie. Current foreign language film of all-time is probably Umberto D. Ask me tomorrow and the answers might be quite different.

To give you another insight into my tastes, I loved the movie Happiness. After I saw it I told everyone I knew that Phillip Seymour Hoffman would one day win an Oscar.

Glad to have this break from arguing whether a player deserves 2.2 or 2.3 million.
