Line by Line



I'll be away from my desk tomorrow, trying to get my name in the Book of Life at the very last minute, but there will be no shortage of me on the web. Incidentally, if I don't make the cut, do I get mine before the holiday ends, or just at some point in the next year?

-Quotemonger, back for the regular season, long as hell. And while you're over at SLAM, check out Myles Brown's completely insane Arenas interview. Like really, really completely insane—make sure to read all the way to the end.

-Expect a new Shoals Unlimited at some point tomorrow. It's the pipeline. And my apologies to anyone who feels my Blatche-boosting wasn't sufficient today. When all's said and done, and all hypothetically explored, Andray's not Jamison (who is?), and if he's their center, the team turns into some place I'd really like to be.

-Late on this, but here's LeBron at a voter registration drive saying "change" over and over again. Since that post I did on Wade, someone's told me that when these things are sponsored by third parties, athletes can't officially support one candidate or the other. I'm going to err on the side of agreeing with several knowledgable sources and figure that, if a player did want to put himself in an utterly partisan position, he could.

-Simmons absolutely kills it on the subject of Elgin Baylor. A little more profound than my take on Elgin in QM.

-I'm planning some sort of FreeDarko book launch event here in Seattle. Am trying to get a handle on how many FD readers there are in my fair city, or Portland headz willing to make the drive. Feel free to stage a roll call in this comments section, or just send an email to the company account.

-So all Jews repent, everyone help those schools, and I'll see you tomorrow night!

I'd roll over from Spokane if you could schedule it to coincide with a Sonics game.

Um, yeah. What about a Hawks game on tv?

the simmons article was just fantastic

Fair enough, Shoals, but if you have League Pass and invite me over, I might never leave. That shit takes some scrilla.

By the by, a joint FreeDarko/Sherman Alexie gig at a Rainier Beach playground court would be a pretty unmissable event.

Bill Walker just touched off a riot on the Celtics' bench with a lovely dunk. He's out of knees to blow out now, right?

I second Micah's request for a book jump off in chicago!

I'd go to a book signing if you did it in the Bay Area.

Roy Hibbert has pointy elbows, they rival Mutombo's.

Bay Area book event seconded.

That's good to know, and it might happen. But the question was if any Seattle readers have that level of interest.

 
At 10/10/2008 1:07 AM, Blogger David said...

I'd show if there's a Seattle gig.

In for a seattle event with a plus 1.

If this were a year ago, I'da rolled up from Pdx & gotten you drunker than you'd ever been. As it is now, I say only that if you come to my town (Oakland) I will help you party down.

Is there an east coast plan?

 
At 10/10/2008 11:55 AM, Blogger Bethlehem Shoals said...

East Coast stuff being finalized for early December. Seattle one-shot will be a lot more informal, mostly just trying to see how many people my and some others planning can expect from the internet ranks.

I am in for Seattle, could probably rally a few friends depending on the night.

 
At 10/10/2008 8:02 PM, Blogger breene said...

I was going to visit some friends in Portland in Nov. so if you did it sometime then I'm sure I could make the hop over.

 
At 10/11/2008 3:11 PM, Blogger jeff said...

yo i'm up for seattle event, might be able to rally a couple more

 
At 10/11/2008 3:56 PM, Blogger Bethlehem Shoals said...

I appreciate hearing from the Seattle folks. . . ordinarily I wouldn't do this, but we're trying to figure out a rough estimate as part of the planning process. So thanks.

There's an East Coast meet-up? Okay, I gotta get in this gathering of pale, skinny liberated basketball fans. Where and when?

On a different acct than normal (usually Tree Frog).

 
At 10/12/2008 11:29 PM, Blogger Bethlehem Shoals said...

There will be a few East Coast stops. Dates forthcoming when they're finalized.

here's for moped night at a warriors game...arrive uninjured and get in for free.

The FD (self-proclaimed) D-LIG has 3 spots open this year. Last year's season came down to the last game of the season to determine the winner, so it's competitive. It will be a keeper league going into the future, so we'd prefer you're in for numerous years. If you'd like to be considered, email me at drherman at gmail.

..just a hoops fan/reader who'd be down for a seattle function.

Mostly a lurker, but I've been reading Freedarko for the last year and a half. I would love a Seattle event of sorts.
