Don't Let Anyone Ever Tell You That Writing for a Sports Weblog Will Never Pay Dividends

After two weeks' worth of trying, I haven't found a suitable place to mention this, so I'm just going to put up a fanpost about it. Your indulgence is appreciated.

My seven-year-old son went with me to the Louisiana-Lafayette game, and, when we went by the campus bookstore, I bought him a book he selected, entitled University of Georgia Football: An Interactive Guide to the World of Sports and authored by Daniel J. Brush, David Horne, and others.

It's a useful handbook of Georgia football trivia, and each chapter begins with a quotation. After we got home from the game, I was leafing through the book, and I saw at the start of each section of the book quotations from Fran Tarkenton, Mark Schlabach, Michael Adams, Herschel Walker, William Tate, me, Pat Dye, Larry Munson, . . .

Wait. What?

I had to double check, but, yeah, there it was, on page 119, a quotation from me, properly attributed, taken from the posting I wrote upon the passing of Erskine Russell.

Let me tell you, your son will never be more impressed with you than when he asks you to buy him a book, and you buy it for him, and, when he gets it home, he discovers that you were quoted in it.
