Next week is going to be nuts for me! Needless to say, I have a lot of nice things to say about a lot of books that you may not have heard of, but are nevertheless hitting the shelf next week, so be sure you read through the entire massive list!
We're got out tickets for the Yankees and Orioles game tomorrow night, and while I'm disappointed that the Yankees have let a 10 game lead in the AL East slip away from them, I'm excited to see a game that means a lot to both teams. And I can't wait for Griffin and Riley to see my start freaking out anytime anything happens.
Even with baseball and comics in the mix, I find I'm most looking forward to all of the food we'll be eating, and as I was sitting around thinking about junk the other day, I realized that I've always been that way. It's not just Buzz & Ned's ribs in Richmond or Phillip's seafood in Baltimore. Or Katz's Deli in New York or Lou Malnati's in Chicago.
It was stopping at the Dan'l Boone Inn in Boone on the way to NASCAR races at Bristol with my family in the spring and fall. It was chili dipped burgers at Martinsville Speedway. My grandma's home cooking. And the list could go on.
I need to get to a gym.
