“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
-Hunter S. Thompson
Enjoy this link to lots of his most recent writings– short columns for ESPN. The first, and more accurately- the last, article is about golf, shotguns and a telephone conversation with Bill Murray. I quote the intro here:
The death of professional hockey in AMERICA is a nasty omen for people with heavy investments in NHL teams. But to me, it meant little or nothing — and that’s why I called Bill Murray with an idea that would change both our lives forever.
I don’t like or follow sports, but I can read HST’s writing and enjoy it in fits of giggles and admiration for his narrative. Goodnight, Hunter. Thanks for the gonzo inspirations.
