I’ve been meaning to touch on this for quite some time, but I’ve never had the chance. Recently I got a copy of Jonesy, Put Your Head Down and Skate, written by former Philadelphia Flyer Keith Jones and ESPN’s John Buccigross. If you’ve read any of John’s columns recently, you may have seen it mentioned.
In the book, Jones tells the story of his career, as well as many other yarns that he picked up along the way. That’s about all I’ll say for now, as I meant to write a mini-review of it, but really haven’t had any time to do anything of late (if you haven’t noticed by how infrequently the site has been updated). If you want to check out some more information about the book, head on over to it’s official website.
Last note, but probably the most important, is that Keith Jones is donating his proceeds from the book to Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Alex’s is a charitable organization that is trying to find a cure for childhood cancer. If you are on the fence about buying this book, my advice would be to buy it just for that reason. You’re giving to charity, and you’re getting something in return. Really can’t beat that. _uacct = “UA-1868762-1”; urchinTracker();
