A Riveting Excerpt from Upcoming Memoir: Harlem to Hollywood My Real-to-Reel Life by Det. Sonny Grosso

Making a living as a writer or any other creative in Hollywood is all about having a really good story, and finding the right people to listen to it.

To borrow a phrase, the new English Premier League season kicked off on Friday with “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue”: something old — the top clubs, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester United, are all set to do a musical chairs two-step for the top-six, with reigning Champions League titlists Liverpool emphatically kicking off the new premiership season with a demolition of newly promoted Norwich; something new — although for different reasons, the Reds and Chelsea didn’t refresh their squads with big new buys, the other top-6 did bring in some exciting fresh talent, as did Leicester, Everton, West Ham and other chasing teams; something borrowed — for the first time, the Premier League is following what other leagues have already implemented, bringing in VAR to hopefully “create minimum interference and maximum benefits.” The jury, us fans, will watch and judge with bated breath. Erh, just make sure the VAR equipment is working, right, fellows?!
