So now I'm back, from outer space
Hm, interesting… the MLBlogs interface on Safari is missing some of the buttons it has on IE/Firefox. Ah well.
Thanks to the prodding of my lovely bride (yup, she’s no longer the bride-to-be!), I am returning from the ether to post here once again. As I tend to do, I’m starting with a short post and then I’ll pick up the quality/length as I get back in the swing.
First, the news, as promised in a mailbag more than a week ago. As mentioned above, I’m now happily married, and have been for 2 1/2 weeks. It’s quite exciting, and it’s really been a wonderful time. We went to California for our honeymoon — ate good food, drank good wine and spent a lot of time with the top down (major thanks to the nice fellow at Hertz at San Diego airport who set me up).
Now, something baseball-related: I just finished Jonathan Eig’s Lou Gehrig biography, Luckiest Man. And all I can do is recommend it most highly. Really a wonderful book, and not at all just a baseball book. He brings Gehrig to life beautifully, and the research is simply staggering. It’s the best baseball book I’ve read since I don’t know what. If you have any interest, pick it up.
Talk to you all soon.
