End of the year PosCast
Here’s the last PosCast of 2021 — Mike and I deal with the fallout of the holiday draft, talk some Baseball Hall of Fame, talk some NBA, talk some fruit, it’s good to end this strange year with as much meaninglessness as ever.
And while we’re talking, I did want to let you know that Mike’s new book “How to be Perfect: The Correct Answer to Every Moral Question,” is now available for preorder. Not only that but Mike is doing something that might sound familiar to you — if you preorder the book from our good friends at Rainy Day Books, he will sign the book AND inscribe it with anything you want him to say.
What an interesting idea! I wonder how they came up with it!
Obviously, I was happy to help set this up for two reasons. One, I want you to make Mike suffer the way you made me suffer. I want you to make HIM write how much he loves Derek Jeter. I want you to make HIM write that fruit pie is delicious. I want you to make him write 700-word paeans to anything and everything.*
*Though I see now that Rainy Day Books has put a “ten word, maximum” limit on the inscriptions — funny, they didn’t put that on my offer, did they? I’m not saying you should blow through that limit because you might be a rule follower and the book, after all, is called “How to be Perfect.” Then again, you might not be a rule follower. I don’t really know you that well.
Two, the hope — COVID-willing — is that Mike and I will get together at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City and record a live PosCast. I’m not sure how realistic that is with cases exploding all over America, but we’d like to try.
Anyway, here’s the Rainy Day link again. I’m sure the book is great. Well, to be honest, I can’t tell you how good the book is because Mike STILL hasn’t sent me a copy. Yeah, that’s right, still no copy. Some friend. Plus the guy owes me money. How to be perfect, indeed.
