Who is Andre Agassi's publicist?

    Agassi has been featured on ESPN programming for a week straight at least. On Around the Horn, on PTI, on SportsCenter and now an "interview" with Rick Reilly. Is this an ESPN book?

    I want to hire this publicist to get me a job.

    Are you using crystal meth and throwing matches?

    And that publicist got him on 60 Minutes. For two segments. That was overkill but a publisher's dream.
  4. Is it? With all the revelations that have come out, any interest I had in buying the book is gone because he's given away everything already.

    Wow, I sound like a newspaper reader.

    Just another case of a parent gone crazy...please, people youth sports are for fun. Your 8-year old doesn't have to be a goal-scoring wizard or an ankle-breaking point guard. Just let them have fun and enjoy sports...please

    Katie Couric's exclusive must have been a real "get." So much so she had to go back out to Las Vegas when the crystal meth use was revealed and she didn't touch on it during her first visit.
    I get how these things work. You contract to write an explosive book. You promise 60 Minutes the first interview "exclusive." You leak details to a blog or other source to get people to watch 60 Minutes a few days before it airs. Then you work deals with ESPN (first sit down interview since some of the juicy tidbits were made public), SI (the excerpt), Larry King (first live primetime interview), Today or GMA (first morning show interview), Letterman, Leno or Conan (first late night interview) then you cap it off with a seat on Oprah's couch.

    Don't forget wearing a hairpiece.

    All this for one of the worst pieces of self-pitying crap I've ever read.
