The Beat goes on!
Well, Maddux had to get worse at some point. That and the fact that the Cubs suck. The season draws to a close. It’s too bad. There are games being played right now that I care so little about that I, despite my boredom, refuse to look at the box scores. Brook is in Michigan for Stephanie’s wedding. I have been drinking beer and trying to find something interesting. I am lamenting that I don’t have cable, for once.
But, ah, I checked MLBeat at one point this week and saw that you had revived it, and that gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling. However, this feeling was soon quashed by the fact that I knew Maddux had just failed to win a game the day before and that your wish would not come true. Oh well. Anyway, I am starting to think more about my SF trip. I was thinking about visiting you and SF at some point over my spring break. However, it looks like Ray and I are going to hit Amsterdam at that point (wow, if you were there at the same time, that would be cool, wouldn’t it—first week of March?) So I am thinking California after I take the bar. Which would be in July/August.
In the meantime, I am interested in whatever it is you are writing. I am assuming MLBeat is not the only thing. I have got a blog going at hierophany.blogspot.com. I am currently trying to get some of my poems, essays, and transcripts up there. However, I am having a damned hard time trying to my blog to pop up when I do web searches. Advice? Think you could put a link to my blog on your blog? I have put a link to your blog on my blog.
You hanging with Nick Adams at all? I am not hanging with anybody. I’ve had about six beers, a percoset, and some John Ashcroft. Missing the old days when I could come to you place at Big Bend and Forsyth and sit out on that balcony! Member that time that the chair was somehow on your shoe? Damn.
