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...

rabey: Hi John/bunkerfan and Steelmonkey.

rabey: Thanks for the interest. Unfortunately because Ian/Tull is doing his own book when I sent a request to find John I got stonewalled, even though I have a signed contract by Ian from 2013 stating I was doing a DVD version of The book. I also have had trouble

rabey: I guess after 5 years Ian forgot this even existed. Imean, he never even listed my book with all the other books that have been out of print for decades, yet mine and Tim S still have books in print and we're not mentioned.

rabey: I just get the impression that this AND having just dealt with Tull are all they care about really and it peeves me when the truth is when I first got my original contract with a US publisher to write the book with quotes on 3 other books on ELP,Crimson,

rabey: and YES, I contacted both Martin and Dave from AND and offered involvement in writing and photography. but Dave said no interest and martin was happy to get his photos printed just for credit. Later Daves book arrived and martin wanted 100 bucks a shot.

rabey: Anyway, The publisher refused the cost of photos, Martin wrote the only negative review of the book in print except for Amazon where a few stinkers stalled it's movement, but basically there was nothing advertising the book outside the UK.

rabey: I have to find a better way to post.

steelmonkey: Fights about history, public knowledge and more personally researched knowledge are pretty hard to untangle...but nothing takes away your contributions to total Tull information.
