Well kids, I graduated from Penn State with a degree in history (its a fake major, I know.)

I'm really good at writing, so I was thinking about penning a book.

Dan Helpingstine already wrote a great book on Sox history, so I won't be doing that. Everything that was of my interest in history classes has been done to death. Then I was struggling...Then, the title hits me:

"Bleacher Bums, Billy Goats, and Beers: OR- Why I Hate the Chicago Cubs"
by SOXintheBURGH

I can crush anything Steven King ever wrote page wise in like, 3 days.

Taking advanced orders now.

I only sign autographs for money.

Do it. Shed some light on the phony Sammy love affair, and how they didn't always have ivy and how this wasn't always a cubs town and how they didn't "always sell out."

I'll tell you this, you'd sell at least 4,000 some odd copies...:cool:

You can write a conspiracy novel about how a northside conglomerate attempted to do something dastardly to a mayor who would not let them expand their stadium. The twist is the northside conglomerate gets to the mayor by kidnapping and brainwashing a Sox fan who came to Wrigley during the Cubs/Sox series. The Sox fan suddenly reappears after 9 months to attend opening day at the Cell...the same game the mayor is attending.

Don't be tempted to travel the avenue of "alternate history" for the Sox either. Eg. Look at this sorry waste (http://www.triumphbooks.com/Little%20Red%20(Sox)%20Book.htm) from 2003. What the hell will Red Sox fans do with themselves now?

How about a tell all autobiography where you admit steroid use, calin to have slept with 10,000 women, and detail your love fling with Madonna.

Guaranteed best seller.
