Jason has 20 questions for author/Facebook addict Jeff Pearlman about his new book “The Rocket that Fell to Earth.” Pearlman is a really direct guy, so there’s a lot of good stuff in there. My favorite part:
IIATMS: Does Clemens regret:
b. His defense?
JP: Roger Clemens doesn’t do regret.
It seems that people either love Pearlman’s work or hate it, and my guess is that it’s that kind of directness, as opposed to a more detached reporter’s perspective that accounts for that. Indeed, there have been times when I’ve taken issue with Pearlman’s stuff for exactly that reason. Still, I think we’re better off having someone like Pearlman around. He’s insanely prolific, picks interesting subjects and, while he may occasionally engage in some hyperbole, you always know where he’s coming from.
