Today's "Well, sure it is" moment

This just in from the Department of This is Not An "Onion" Parody:

Bob Knight has a new book coming out. It's titled "The Power of Negative Thinking: An Unconventional Approach To Achieving Positive Results."

(Alternate title: "Tell A Kid He's Garbage, Create A Diamond.")

Also ... another gem from the King of Negativity, this one from an interview about the book he gave to Andrew Goldman of the New York Times Magazine: "When I first started coaching, one of the worst things that I think I heard was 'It will be O.K.' I would wonder, How the hell is it going to be O.K.? The worst word in the English language is 'hope.'"

Don't know about you, but I wouldn't want this guy in my lifeboat.
