2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)My wife gave me a Roy Hobbs jersey one Christmas. Not a living, player, not even a dead one! Not even REAL. Not sure if this is REALLY cool, or REALLY lame. By the way, Hobbs never won a World Series ring, so, like A-Rod, he was a "loser," and the Knights would've been better off without him.
(RHughes from nj)
Plus, in the book he threw the big game, so you've got the fictional equivalent garment of a Chick Gandil jersey. I vote for lame, but give your missus an A for effort. How could she know what you really wanted was a Boston Red Sox Don Buddin jersey? (Steven Goldman)
2009-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)You really think Hobbs threw the big game? I always thought that he really tried in that last at bat and messed up. But since you can't see intent, it looked like he threw it to everyone else, and that was the tragedy in the story. Any way you look at it, though, it's better than the movie.
(Ted from Gainesville)
It has been 20 years or so since I read the book, but IIRC your interpretation is the correct one. He put himself into the position to throw it, changed his mind, and whiffed anyway. I'm sure someone else will chime in with the right version if we've missed it. So maybe I change my Chick Gandil comp to Buck Weaver. That's a more nuanced shirt. (Steven Goldman)
