More from the Juice

Born to Run

Submitter: We found this gem while weeding the 700s.  Published in 1974 by Larry Fox with an introduction by Weeb Ewbank.  Gee, but that OJ sounds like a swell guy and a great role model!  Perhaps it needs a subtitle – “Born to Run: Very slowly, in a white Ford Bronco.”

Holly: You all know my problem with old biographies.  Sure, OJ was a great football player back in the day.  I think we are missing a big chunk of the story.  If  you need more “juice”, click here to see our other biography.

Rona Barrett

Miss Rona: An Autobiography

Okay Baby Boomers!  Who remembers Rona Barrett?  For you kids out there, she was one of the pioneers in entertainment news and reporting.  I remember catching her on tv as a teen all the time.  Great choice for the 70’s but I think it is time for an update.  I wonder what she thinks of the insane amount of gossip on tv and the Internet.  That is a book that needs to be written…


Great Canadian Athletes

Champions: Great Figures in Canadian Sport

Submitter: A great primer on current Canadian Athletes, esp great with upcoming Olympics! I guess they just missed mentioning Gretzky, Sidney Crosby, Steve Nash, Justin Morneau, Jason Bay etc. etc. But Bobby Hull sure is hot baling hay!

Holly: Bobby Hull turns 71 this year.  Wow! He looks so good for his age.  Of course Bobby deserves to be in a book about Canadian athletes,  but there have to be newer books on this topic that include more current contributors too.  Upgrades are especially important in a Winter Olympics year.
