A word about an Annual

I received an offer from Brian Carriveau of CheeseheadTV (and various other websites) to write an article for the Maple Street Press Milwaukee Brewers Annual 2011.

My article is about the relationship between the Timber Rattlers and the Brewers.  But, there is so much more in the annual.  The top Brewers bloggers on the web all contributed articles.  I have been paging through my advance copy in my free moments over the last few days and there is a lot of great stuff.

This is being mentioned today because today is the day that Maple Street Press is starting to ship the Annual.  It will be on newsstands on March 1, but you can order it right now and it will be sent out to you.

Here is the link to order it

I am just going to steal the table of contents from Jaymes at The Brewers Bar.  Nice work on that, Jaymes. Thank you.
