What to do when the season ends?

Recommended Posts

I know what you're thinking.  "Gee, the summer's getting along now, and pretty soon my baseball schedule is gonna be pretty light.  What will I do with myself besides dream of next spring?"

Well, friends, I've got the solution.  Why not give your eyes something fun to do when they're not looking at balls and strikes and read my new novel?  If you like a non-formulaic fictional work, this might just be your thing.

Thanks!

Do Football, Volleyball, and Basketball.   That'll keep you busy (and what I do).  :blink:

Me too, though I dropped volleyball when one of the 2 guys I enjoyed working with passed away. The others are all creepers and volleyball nerds.

Tempted to post the link to my new book, which came out in April and has sold at least 3 copies to date. But it's nonfiction, which means not entertaining in the off season.

Post the link, please!

I read non-fiction...

Official Baseball Rules...NCAA Rules...NFHS Rules...and Playboy (just for the articles.  Of course, I'm just kidding on this one...)

But, by no means am I a rules expert.

You're kidding about the articles or about the publication?

I'm kidding about Playboy, yes.  I do not subscribe.

My feeble attempt at humor...

My last game was July 14th. When the season ends I'm usually ready for it to end and have more free time to pursue my other summer interests. I fish, play a little golf, and take my vacation somewhere with the wife. Once November rolls around I'll start officiating basketball, which I actually enjoy more than umpiring.

Yeah, but do you enjoy a good read?

Absolutely. In fact I have just started "A Universe From Nothing" by Lawrence Krauss. An interesting attempt at scientifically explaining the age old question of how this all came to be out of nothing.

Well then... how about adding a copy of "A Far, Far Better Thing" to your library?
