We don't have the holidays as an excuse anymore.

You have to forgive forgive Bumf if he seems sour on baseball. He's a Phillies fan.<p>And he once wrote an unpublished novel, which I had the pleasure of reading years ago, called "The Perfect Curve." I guess that's what you do if you can't hit.

Come on, Phil..don't you remember that homer I hit in the TU softball game?<p>I'd forgotten about writing that novel. Maybe I'll dig it up and "sell" it to an ePublisher for copies.

Yeah, Bumf, but did you hit it off a curve ball?

Strange...I went to a baseball site today and there were no threads about copy editing.

Well, I would have hung around, except nothing interesting has happened in baseball since 1970. Except the Phillies winning the Series, of course.<p>[ January 25, 2004: Message edited by: Bumfketeer ]</p>

You forget the first game of the '88 Series? And the third game in '89? Now, that was interesting -- especially when you couldn't see it because the power went out at 5:07 p.m., and it was only days later that you heard the tape with Al Michaels saying, "We've had a major earthquake."
