Steve, thanks for letting us know. I can go nite nite and catch it tomorrow.
I’m glad Glav & Murph treated you well. I remember the Glavine show was the first time I understood what a classy podcast ABT is. Not just cuz you got him, but the way it came off.
In fact, his graciousness in that interview is what keeps my love for Glav hanging on by a thread. A tiny thread. A thread like if the world’s smallest spider had an itty-bitty baby spider – a preemie – and that baby spider pooped out it’s first wittle baby-thread so microscopic that it’s mama couldn’t see it.
I met Bruce Benedict when I was a kid. He was teaching a baseball camp when the players were on strike and he was great. Bob Horner came by and he was a really nice guy too. I met Cooter from Dukes of Hazzard when I was a kid. He was much as you would expect. Ham and I also grew up with Fran Tarkenton’s son and he was always a very nice man when I was at his house. Oh, and another guy in my softball league is the drummer for the band Sevendust, who Ham and I also grew up with, and who is just a funny down to earth guy still. For those of you who know who Sevendust is.
But to echo Steve, all these players and media-types have been nothing but great. From Frenchy to JJ to TP to Dimino. All these guys have been so generous with their time with us. I have been amazed, and I’m not sure why. I guess the expectation is that these athletes are all self-absorbed and distant, and save one instance, that has never been the case.
Why Steve I’m glad you asked. The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky. Not what you would call light or easy reading but well worth the effort. Someone told me it was the best novel ever written so I thought I’d give it a try.
