Randy Moss: Renaissance Man
Patriots fans know all too well what Tom Brady has been up to during the off-season. Meanwhile, Bill Belichick has apparently been taking hairstyle tips from Dennis Eckersley. Oh, and Dan Koppen got married to a cheerleader.
But we haven’t heard much from Randy Moss since the domestic abuse charges against him were dropped. Apparently, he’s also been busy with side projects.
Full Throttle reports that our favorite mouthy wide receiver recently formed Moss Motorsports. And the Herald’s NASCAR blog (really) points out that Moss is interested in fielding an entry in the sport’s Truck Series.
Here’s the Moss press release, which appears on Full Throttle:
“There are some pretty awesome challenges in building a program like this from the ground up, but I am looking forward to it,” Moss said. “That’s just another aspect of the competition–you want to find the best people available, and you’re competing with all the other teams out there. We’re starting to look at who the best people are and working on getting them to be a part of our team.”
The racing blogger wonders how Moss will have the time to find all the parts that make a race team work with the football season fast approaching. Maybe Moss will find the time by passing on a book tour for his upcoming authorized biography.
“I’ve been approached about doing a book many times in my career,” said Moss. “But I didn’t think it was time for it at the time. But at this point of my career, I feel that it’s time to come on out with my experiences. I’ve matured and grown and I’ve accomplished more in football. I want to let people in on my life, about football and my everyday life.”
The book, tentatively titled Rollin’ with Randy: The Real Randy Moss story, will be an emotional rollercoaster according to the author, Jim Workman.
“This book will provoke laughter as well as tears,” said Workman. “Randy’s story is very inspirational. We’re looking forward to sharing the many sides of Randy that only a few of his closest friends and family have had the pleasure of seeing until now.”
