Blog Recognition

Time for a quick timeout so that i can recognize a few of my fellow bloggers -

Goose Joak - For those of you who haven't stumbled across this blog yet, do yourself a favor and check it out. One of th centerpieces of Goose Joak (which is by the way my favorite blog name) is a series of great fantasy cards. A while back Dave asked for some suggestions for future fantasy cards. I suggested a 2004 Bill Buckner card. In my opinion, Buckner bore too much hatred and blame from Red Sox fans for far too long. Yes it was a boneheaded play, but there were others who were equally, if not more responsible for the Red Sox loss that year (Calvin Schiraldi, this means you). 2004 wiped that all away and I thought it a fitting mea culpa to show Buckner on a card from the year that all was forgiven.

wait till next year - A little over a week ago I received an email from a Green Monster reader (they really do exist) asking me to check out his new blog and give it a plug if I liked it. Well not only did I check it out and like it, I added it to my daily reading list (which currently stands at 66 blogs, most of the hobby related). I find it funny how similar Cubs fans and Red Sox fans are. I can't tell you how many times I heard the phrase "wait till next year" from one of my New England relatives when talking about the disappointing end to yet another season. Hang in there Cubs fans, its all worth it.

Bluegrass Smoke Signals - I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Kentucky Harold and his vintage themed card blog. After all, he is the only official "follower" according to blogger. Besides his card blog, KH also writes a second blog that deals with the Euclidean Triangle. I tried reading a couple of his geometry posts and they made my head swim. I use basic geometry in my regular job (architect), but KH takes it to another level.

Thanks for the plug . . .you are now added to my blogroll. I agree, Cubs fans and Red Sox fans have much in common . . . yet you do have one thing to brag about over us. Shoot me your address . . . I have many Red Sox duplicates that you might like.

Thanks for the kind words. "Wait till next year", is a phrase well known to all fans of the Indians. Last time we were champions was 1948, two years before I was born. Maybe this year will be our chance, now that we have Carl Pavano and Mark DeRosa!

I'd follow your blog but you don't have the shortcut to follow you on your sidebar so I don't know how to add you to my list.
