I’m using this section to park some of my old writing from blogging at WPDE, but the headliner is the book that I co-wrote with ESPN.com’s Charlie Crème (he was Chuck Whitney in the Maine days).
You can find the book on Amazon, going rate $1.87. If you buy it, there’s a pretty good chance Charlie and I will fly to your house and read it to you. We got a great review from our friends in the Great White North.
