Be honest. You're probably going to buy a copy.

Michael Oher has recently been asked to write a memoir. I know, I know, The Blind Side exists in both print and flashy-moving-people-plus-sound editions, but this one is gonna be different. It will be about how he grew up in the ghetto of Memphis to a crackhead mother and, only by the grace of good fortune, wound up in the National Football League via the generosity of wealthy, white, suburban adoptive parents.

Alright, so it'll be exactly like The Blind Side with likely a little more grit. So what.

In light of this, we present to you other potential memoirs by other Rebels, Rebel bloggeurs, and other sports figures of varying significance and relevance.
