On today's earlier than normal Jerks: The Knee Jerks go on a literary bent as we have our first author on the show! Our special guest is Marty Appel, author of a new Doubleday book about former Yankees catcher, 7 time All-Star and 1976 AL MVP Thurman Munson, "Munson: The Life and Death of a Yankee Captain." Marty was the Yankees Public Relations Director when Munson was starring for the team, and later went on to produce Emmy Award winning telecasts of their games. Appel also co-authored Munson's bestselling autobiography, along with 16 other books. Today he appears frequently on YES Network, ESPN, MLB and HBO. After we discuss the life and times of one of the best catchers of his era, we'll give our thoughts on the past week of the Detroit Tigers as they head into the final weeks of the pennant race. We'll also cover the latest news from Detroit Lions' Allen Park HQ, including rants regarding their 3rd exhibition game against the Colts. We'll touch on the latest from Red Wings at the Joe, or from the Palace, home of the Detroit Pistons. To close the show, we name our respective Jerk of the Week! Be here at 11PM every Monday night for the latest and greatest in sports talk...sports talk with a Detroit attitude!
