My book received it's first "print review" by executive editor of the Peoria Journal Star Mr. Dennis Anderson. I might add he is a great follow on twitter.

Other than, "Why am I up?", here are a few random(very) questions I have this morning?

1. Why do the crappy White Sox get 2 All-Stars? If you haven't been paying attention, they are HORRIBLE!

2. Why is there so much Anti-Castro(Starlin) sentiment out there? Just let him play and we will deal with it at the end of the season.

3. Does someone have voo-doo dolls of Cubs' outfielders?

4. Why does anyone care about Dwight Howard?

5. Is Aaron Hernandez a criminal who just happens to play football in his off-season? Geez...have you been following any of this...dude makes some of the other NFL criminals look like kittens.

And as a silly bonus question...Why the hell do razors cost so much? A replacement pack of 4 costs like $18-20 bucks...Are there traces of gold in them? I thought I was buying some toiletries, not making a drug deal.

I shave with a straight razor for that exact reason... Or course I have a full beard so I only need to shave a small section but if I didn't I would still go with a straight razor. Better shave and cheap.

I just think Castro is the lightning for for the team. Some folks just need something to bitch about and he is giving them plenty of fodder. Most folks forget how young he is and that he doesn't have a lifetime of playing experience.

It is amazing how football is filled with folks who are pretty disgusting human beings.

Congrats on the first print review.

I agree about Castro. And the razors, I use a Mach 3. You can buy a handle with 3 extra blades for 9.99, but 5 blades for 28.00. I just buy a new handle every time

A kid I coached played in the NFL for a few years...there was a player that was nicknamed Skillet...

I asked him why they called him Skillet and he said.."he got in a fight at a party and beat a guy to death with a frying pan"

Self defense I guess.

Check out dollar a month shave club (or something very similar to that).

 

I switched to an electric shaver a few years back, but I still use a razor when I travel.  It didn't make sense (or cents) for me, but I've heard really decent things about their products and the price seems to be good as well.

Same individual who had voodoo dolls of Wood Prior and Guzman ten or so years ago.  They probably also had one for Zambrano, but preferred to stab his doll in the head

via Wikipedia:

He became a free agent after the season and signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers on December 13, 2011. He also received an invitation to spring training. Guzmán was suspended by MLB for the first 50 games of the 2012 season due to his second violation of Minor league drug prevention program.[7] He was activated off the suspended list on June 12 and assigned to the AAA Albuquerque Isotopes. He pitched in 23 games for the Isotopes and was 2-1 with a 4.43 ERA in 22.1 innings.

 

Currently a free agent.

 

BTW-I use a Schick Quatro or whatever to shave... I use a Norelco cordless shaver beforehand... saves me a ton of money. I switch out blades every 3 months or so.

I mostly use a trimmer now (both head and face). I never have a clean shave, but at least I don't have to pay $50 for a 2 pack of razors.
