(by email, 25 October 2014)
I just received a package from Dave today, in which were some scans of some work he is doing (not s'posed to say what). In the cover letter, he opened with this homage to my life-long favorite baseball team:
Hi, Jeff -- Having foresworn professional sports as a harmful addiction -- my only exposure now being when something appears on the front page of the NATIONAL POST, *NO* reading of or glancing at the sports section -- I had no idea what was happening in the playoffs until there was a small photo of a Royals pitcher and "Royals sweep Orioles to advance to World Series" the other day. And, yes, my first reaction was, "Well, Jeff is a happy camper right now" (coupled with "This is probably not the happiest day of Steve Geppi's life, as a minority owner of the Orioles").
Probably about 100% sure that's the only time I will ever be thought of in the same moment with Steve Geppi, ever, by anyone...
And, Dave closed with:
"Yours, as well, beyond issue #300... and Go Royals!"
You may post that, Tim, if you're so inclined.
