A quick shout-out to one of our big advertisers, the new baseball book "Spalding’s World Tour". We haven’t read it yet but the pre-order for the sure-to-be riveting tome has been taken care of: no free readers copies for us lowly bloggers. According to his bio, the author hails from New York City and appears to be quite the erudite fellow (architecture and design! we like!). We also have it on good sources (we’re in the NYC design world as well) that the man in question is a long-time Bombers fan (unlike us, thank heavens), so our experienced eagle eyes couldn’t help but notice the very questionable environs of the author’s photo.
