You may recall that BN’er Oswego Chris (Neitzel) recently wrote a fantastic book on the real reasons the Chicago Cubs have gone so long without a championship. Since the predicate for the book was 104 reasons that it’s been 104 years, you had to know there was an update coming, since 2013 wasn’t The Year.
I wrote the foreword for the book, which I think is one of the best histories of the organization I’ve read. And, as you can see from the second edition cover, it’s getting some superlative reviews from the big timers.
You can get your own copy (holiday gift, perhaps?) over at Amazon (on sale right now), or you can contact Chris about getting an inscribed copy. Chris can be reached at BBCG105Reasons@yahoo.com or on Twitter @BBCG105Reasons. He’ll hook you up with an inscribed copy of 104 Reasons for just $10.75 (including shipping), or an inscribed copy of 105 Reasons for $15.75 (including shipping).
Once again, kudos to Chris for doing something incredible. You can read more about his efforts here.
