What is he doing for the second book? He covered his entire carrer in the first, albeit with no detail.
July 4th 1994: It was a bright sunny day in this small Ohio town. All was not bright for the four disfranchised men however, there hearts were not full of patriotic glee, there intentions not set on the social gathering taking place on the cities streets. Flemming, Parish, Sidell, Weigal gathered round the TV to watch Benny Hinn, a loud sound, similar to gunfire startled their medicated hearts. When the four men went to the door, to examine the situation they were greeted with 600 of the towns citizens, chanting in unison. TARDS GO HOME...TARDS GO HOME!!!!

Did he mention anything about his health? I know this was covered off in an earlier thread, but just curious if HE actually said that he was recovering well. I certainly hope so. One of my all-time faves.
He said he was doing well...I wasn't on the phone with him for very long. I believe he has said the second book will have more stories in it.

Did Sports Publishing do his first book? I work in the publishing business, and they have a reputation of being ... well, flaky and a little low-class. They put out a lot of stuff, but it's usually low-quality production. We've had authors get upset with us that they actually had to get PERMISSION to use specific photos in their book, because Sports Publishing didn't make them get permission for the book they did with them -- they just used the photos! lol.
I seem to remember the Brain saying that while the first book was like an autobiography, the second will mostly be anecdotes from his years on the road. If the dates you mentioned were accurate, Father's Day can't come fast enough.
Big loss for SD. JBL was a great heel commentator and there ain't that many people that can do that. Anyone that watched Velocity or Heat know that the E don't have many people in the bullpen. I wonder how they're gonna write him out.
