So a month or so ago I was asked by the New York Post to review Marty Appel’s new Thurman Munson biography. They sent me the book. I read it. Liked it. I wrote a review. Then I traded the book to Jason at IIATMS for a Chipper Jones jersey he didn’t want anymore (query: what the hell is a Yankees fan doing with a Chipper Jones jersey anyway?). Pretty sweet deal all around (I think I got the better end of the trade, though).
Sadly, the review never ran, which happens sometimes. At least I think it never ran, because it never showed up on the Post’s website and I can’t find it online anywhere. Despite this, I just received a check in the mail for the full review fee (not a spike fee), which is strange even if the thing did run, because I am a procrastinator and I had neglected to send in the little invoice the Post requires before a check can be cut. Very strange.
Anyway, if anyone did happen to read my Thurman Munson book review someplace, please tell me how it turned out because I’m genuinely curious.
