Read in February, 2010

I thought I knew the story behind "The Punch" - that thug Kermit Washington punched Rudy Tomjanovich in a cheap shot and nearly killed him. As it turns out, both are good men (though not wholesome; Tomjanovich battled alcoholism, Washington destroyed his marriage by cheating on his wife that had been loyal to him) who have had to accept they will be forever defined by those 5 seconds on Dec. 9, 1977. I loved this book and couldn't stop reading it and wished there was more (it was written 2002, I read it in 2010) when I was done.
