Need any of you require further data helping you decide who to support in this year's baseball championship, in addition to the obvious: San Francisco vs Texas...please be advised that the Texas team was once owned by a certain George W. Bush. The Texas team plays in Dallas..perhaps the ugliest, most soul-less metropolis in the land...although Houston and San Antonio, along with, just to be fair, Phoenix, Orlando and Las Vegas. are also finalists in the ugly city category.
Speaking as a chap who spent 10 years of his career in professional football (as an administrator....not a player, I hasten to add) I just like to say how it always makes me smile to read about a WORLD SERIES when that world only consists of one country!!
That said, I do enjoy Ice Hockey whenever I visit the United States of Uncle Sam
True enough...it's doof as can be to call the US and one canadian city championship a world series...if anything, it should be called Series mundial del los estados unidos since most of the players are from Latin America anyway....the big, strong, african-americans who ruled the game when i was a boy have migrated to american football and basketball leaving baseball to carribean latinos and small town southern white boys...still fun...
sealion: Mmm, my Signature copy arrived yesterday and I've now got most of the way through it. It's certainly a lovely book but worth the £275?

sealion: Essentially we're paying £235 for a number, a 7" vinyl (which, let's be honest, isn't that great), 2 art prints, IA's autograph and a box. Oh yes, and my name listed in the back. A pair of tickets for the 2020 tour would've been a nice gesture....

sealion: Do I regret it? Not really, because it's Jethro Tull, but, perversely,I probably would've done if I'd only gone for the cheaper version! That said I'm not sure how the price difference between the two versions can be justified...

sealion: Jethro Tull the prog years? So it's Passion Play in it's entirety then!

steelmonkey: Got new job, starting Feb 3,2020, Tull book and Stormwatch, all just in time for Thanksgiving. Prsent and promise to self: Catch up on Tull forum this weekend. Fair warning: reviews and rants/raves/nonsense looming like the big bear cover of Stormwatch.
