First off, let me take the time out to recognize my lovely lady friend who won the NCAA pool I asked you all to join several weeks back. She won by a comfortable margin, and she is indeed a superstar. Some of you who read this very blog should be ashamed to have gotten beaten so badly. I exclude myself from her wrath, because my son did my picks for me, and as much as I admired his gumption and his fortitude, his picks sucked. I would have won had I done my own picks. But let me not be a backhanded compliment person..congrats to m'lady.

Originally, I was convinced that my first published book would be a collection of blog entries, and a couple of years ago, I was going thru the slow, painstakingly tedious process of editing each and every entry. Taking out names, deleting the musical selections, and making sure no one could sue me. After awhile I lost interest, and I just stopped, not knowing how or when I would break my first book cherry. But a few days ago the idea hit me, and I am going to roll with it. I am going to write a book entitled, "My Second Year Covering The NBA (Because I Didn't Take Good Notes During The First One)". And yes that would be the entire title. In it, I would discuss my wonderful experience regarding the NBA, all while using the type of colorful language that I usually have to censor. I am very exciting about it, and I will never mention it again until after next season. Then at that point, I will hit you with jihad levels of begging and all that. At some point I'll write a serious, non-sports book but not right now.

End of a Love Affair - Wes Montgomery
