A Sweet Ordeal For All of Us to Share
Since the book is now actually, finally done, I'll come forth and ask myself: Please feel free to pre-order from Amazon. There's some disinformation on that page, and the cover still might change, but the time has sort of come. So let me offer several compelling reasons for you to cop:
Because our sources told us who "Kaiser" is (see final graf).
Because there are drawings everywhere.
Because there are a ton of those Style Guides that everyone loved so much.
Because it's got some of our most cohesive writing about most of our favorite players' careers.
Because it has graphs that will change the universe.
Because if you think the site is too weird, or not weird enough, there's much for you in here.
Because your girl will like it.
Because longtime readers will recognize some themes, but be taken aback by others.
Because it has a glossary.
Because it's like the blog, but with illustrations, an editor, and lots of elaborate set-pieces we could never pull off on a web page.
Because I once told Dr. LIC that "this book makes our website look like an outhouse."
Because it explains my dip in output this past season.
Because Arenas wrote the foreword.
Because it's now going to be a hardcover, for the same price.
Because you save a bunch of money if you buy now.
Because these playoffs may be sour, but salvation is on the way.
