I love the game, Lisa. I've loved baseball since I was a boy and followed my Tigers every day in the paper and on television. Warm summer nights listening to Ernie Harwell calling the game from Tiger Stadium. I attended my first game in 1975--I was awestruck! Walking out of the dark, dank hallways into the sunshine and seeing all that green grass!!! Wow. I've never seen green quite like that again! Yes, this season has been very, very special. It's been a real joy to wake up and look forward to reading the papers and checking the box scores. It's been much too long. I hate it when purists bitch about people "jumping on the bandwagaon" now that the team is actually playing well. So what?!?! There's plenty of room on the 'wagon for even the casual fan. That's the joy of baseball. There are 162 games a season---only freaks like me follow them all! Get on board, Lisa. Enjoy the ride. The Tigers will be World Series champs this year. I can feel it.

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)
  • Matt Birbeck: A Beautiful Child
    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
