Cool -- thanks! My wife keeps scolding me for buying Sox stuff and ruining her Christmas present ideas, but the Sporting News book is one she'd probably never come across on her own. So it lets me feed my buying habit!

BTW, on Thursday, the post-Series edition of SN finally hit the newsstands at Union Station (not sure if it was available elsewhere earlier), and it's well worth picking up.

I know I already posted this elsewhere, but methinks that if you're not in the Chicago area, you're going to have to settle for the issue with "the second half of the NFL season" hogging the cover, while the Sox World Series Championship is relegated to the upper right corner (at least that's how it is here in Sooner country)... sigh...

Is this the one with M & M Guy holding a sign. A previous thread said and M & M Guy pic of him holding a sign was in the Sporting News. If it is this will sell out within minutes in Chicago so I'll be sure to get right out and grab a copy.

Thanks.

Chalk up another one I'm gonna have to buy now. My wife is seriously gonna kill me. Last week I bought the Street & Smith's commemorative mag. and it's pretty good. There's a very well-written article entitled "Better Late Than Never" in the first few pages that got me a little choked up. I think it's my favorite of all (6 and counting) the WS magazines I've bought so far.
