ALWAYS ON THE RUN by Larry; Jim Kiick & Dave Anderson Csonka


Email this review


For what it's worth (not much), Larry Csonka and Jim Kiick, a.k.a. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, the fearsome Miami Dolphins' running backs, discourse on their lives, hell-for-leather careers, teammates, coaches, wives, chicks, old towel fights, Super Bowls, injuries, yardage techniques -- everything including the time Mo Moorman shot a Toddle House counterwoman with mustard, ""one of those plastic squeeze jobs. . . . He just squeezed it slow. He shot her across the dress. . . ."" Ha ha. Jim's the guy in ital. while Zonk's in straight type: ""Our other safety-man, Jake Scott, is a born gambler. He likes to take chances. He likes to chase girls, too""; ""Charley Fowler lived for food. Charley ate everything he saw""; ""Don Shula is an ass-busting coach. . . . But we bust his ass a little bit, too."" And so it goes. Like Zonk and Jim, on and on, an endless sweep around what we used to call the gridiron.
