“…the wave finally broke and rolled back.”

“When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”
-Hunter S. Thompson
HuntersHuntersteadmanHstEnjoy 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.

  1. Sad news I read this morning. I remember reading Loath and Fear in Las Vegas being 17 r 18 … what a smash in the face.
    A great writter (I wouldn’t say man as I don’t personnaly know him ;D) is gone. A real shame
