So, I finally had a manuscript idea that’s worth pursuing, so don’t expect to see much in this space until I finish it (unlikely) or get horrible writers block and give up (likely). I’ll still post sporadically, but in the meantime if you want to follow my crazy hijinks, check out my fake Chuck Klosterman Twitter. That is all. Best, Bobby
Advice for Dustin Pedroia →
Dustin, a word. Like you, I’ve been burdened with amazing success after leaving a podunk town. Heck, once the Kings leave the only difference between the Hartford suburbs and the Sacramento suburbs will be Terminator population. Dustin, bubbala, you’re doing it all wrong.
