Dave hill: Hello, and welcome to this
month's edition of Book Bits
Dave hill: with Paul Lanksy. I'm your
host, Paul Lansky.
Dave hill: Now, it's no secret that
over the past few seasons
Dave hill: the NFL has been
rolled in scandal.
Dave hill: Now the latest scandal
is the release of the new
Dave hill: book NFL Confidential,
Dave hill: there's even more
Dave hill: Now here to defend the
league, and endure at least
Dave hill: 2 minutes straight of my
non stop, relentless probing is
Dave hill: former NFL running
back Eddie George.
Eddie George: I'm here to promote
Chicago the Musical.
Dave hill: Not anymore you're not.
Dave hill: Oh, and before I get
started, let me just
Dave hill: preface that I have never
played this game of
Dave hill: football, but the idea of
grown men playing sports,
Dave hill: and scampering about in
their little hot pants offends
Dave hill: and disgusts me. Now, Mr. George,
Eddie George: It's on Broadway.
I'm playing Billy Flynn.
Eddie George: I'm on Broadway--
Dave hill: You done?
Eddie George: I'm on Broadway--
Dave hill: Done?
Dave hill: Have the barbaric men
behind football ever
Dave hill: considered maybe engaging
in something a bit more
Dave hill: civilized, maybe sipping
Cartesian coffees or
Dave hill: discussing the eclectic
words of gurta?
Eddie George: The correct observant
pronunciation might be gurta.
Dave hill: And don't change
Eddie George: I do love the literature
of early romanticism.
Eddie George: Of course, Chicago is a
migrant satire with a
Eddie George: certain subtlety.
Dave hill: Are you done?
Dave hill: Thanks.
Dave hill: It says here in this book
that in football there's
Dave hill: fighting, and cursing,
and yelling. No anything
Dave hill: about that Georgie?
Eddie George: Of course Paul. Don't you
ever get so excited
Eddie George: and passionate about
something that you just
Eddie George: need to release it with,
uh, a little lengthy--
Dave hill: Then I would handle it
with a more dignified
Dave hill: fashion, maybe recite
some Shakespearean oaths.
Eddie George: Ah, yes. The Bard of Avon:
Eddie George: "From fairest creatures
we desire increase,
Eddie George: That thereby beauty's
rose might never die,"
Eddie George: Beautiful words--
Dave hill: It says in the book that
in football there's
Dave hill: concussions, and whoring,
and rampant smoking
Dave hill: of marijuana.
Eddie George: Really?
Eddie George: Sounds like fun.
Dave hill: Uh, racism.
Eddie George: Absolutely.
Dave hill: Homophobia.
Eddie George: Got to live with it.
Dave hill: Beastiality and buggery.
Eddie George: What?
Dave hill: The whoring part. What's
that about? Non stop pounding.
Dave hill: Eh. Eh.
Eddie George: Yeah. Uh, the great life.
Dave hill: I gotta admit, it was
an enjoyable read. I
Dave hill: especially loved that--
Eddie George: You ever thought of
Dave hill: What?
Eddie George: Throwing the football around.
The old pigskin.
Eddie George: The old inflated ball
of mass. Huh?
Dave hill: Okay, I'm not made
Eddie George: The old [inaudible] shaped
ball of many--
Dave hill: Now that you're bringing
it up, I do happen to
Dave hill: be the top seeker on my
mobile quidditch team.
Dave hill: The other guys call me
Young feathers in Fluff.
Eddie George: Here we go. You ready?
Dave hill: Ah! Fuck!
Eddie George: That had to hurt.
Dave hill: Goddammit.
