Lucky Bastard: My Life, My Dad, and the Things Im Not Allowed to Say on TV by Joe BuckIf you’re a sports fan, you’ve heard of Joe Buck. He’s on FOX’s number one crew for both football and baseball and he’s everywhere. You either love him, hate him or you’re like me and deeply respect the guy.
Joe Buck is the son of St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Broadcaster Jack Buck. His path to success hasn’t been easy and he works his tail off, harder than most I think. The reason? He’s Jack’s kid and while most everyone thinks he got his start because of his dad, in all reality, it was his mum.
In this memoir, Joe Buck takes off the gloves and censors, sharing his life (both ups and downs) with humorous one-liners one minute and private moments the next. He talks about his dad and what it was like to grow up in the limelight. He talks about his success and downfalls in broadcasting and his obsession for hair plugs. He talks about insecurities, his crumbling marriage and saying good-bye to his beloved father on his deathbed. This is Joe Buck uncensored and I loved every page!
Listen, I didn’t know what to expect from this memoir but the preconceptions I’ve had for Buck have gone out the window. Sure, he’s mega famous but he has to put on his pants on, just like me. Lucky Bastard is a treasure for any sports fan because Buck peels back the curtain and shows what really takes place behind the scenes. Brilliant!
If you’re a baseball fan, you’ll love this inside look into one of the most-admired and hardest-working broadcasters in the biz. If you’re a football fan, you’ll love the stories Buck shares.
A must read that is addictive, funny and heartwarming all at the same time.
Disclaimer: I received a hardcover as a gift.
