Hitting the Road
So, just wanted to give you all a little heads up … we are going on a cross-country family driving trip to pick up our daughter from college and see some friends and, yeah, it has been a LONG time since we have done anything like this. I’m not at all sure what it will feel like.
Anyway, until after the holidays, we’ll be a little quieter here at Joe Blogs. I’ll bet that I still find some time to get some stuff up because I’m a crazy person who cannot help himself. I can tell you I’m working on a massive, super fun essay on No. 57 in the Football 101 — I think you’ll really like it, lots of rabbit holes. And I’m hoping to make a big announcement soon. And I’m preparing all sorts of cool new features for Joe Blogs in the new year. And so on.
I’d love it, of course, if you would subscribe or give a gift subscription:
In the meantime, I’m hoping to hit the road and recharge the batteries just a little bit — it has been one amazing year for me with the wild success of The Baseball 100, the incredible response to Honor Your Hometown, the absolutely wonderful support you’ve shown here at Joe Blogs, the total joy I get talking nonsense with my friend Mike Schur on the PosCast (now at Meadowlark Media!) and the big news that I will share soon … in many ways this has been the most spectacular professional year of my life.
I’m so glad to have you along for the ride.
Before I get in the car — and who are we kidding, you know I’ll give you updates along the trip — let me share with you a couple of photos that make my heart sing.
I read all the Baseball 100 stuff when it was posted online initially, and then told my wife that she absolutely had better get it for me for Christmas. It's not until I saw these photos that I realized I'm going to have to wrestle it away from my 9 year old if I'm ever going to have any time with it!
Just got my signed copy from Rainy Day Books.... in time for the holidays ... my gift to myself.
Loved the series at The Athletic -- have reread so many of the essays already (Monte Irvin!) ... and can't wait to read them again.
Thanks for the good reads this year and for the last forever years, Joe. Have a great vacation, drive safely, and enjoy connecting with the family.
