Tomorrow Night, We Join The Varsity Letters Crew

So, it's now January 2008, and you know what that means: It's time to unleash self-deprecating but subtly (?) self-aggrandizing posts reminding you we have a book coming out in exactly 20 days. And tomorrow night, we'll be reading from it.

Yep, it's time for the monthly Varsity Letters Reading Series, and we are honored to be on the slate, along with Dan Shanoff and Dave Zirin, both of whom should be awfully familiar to anyone around these parts.

We had been hoping to have books available for purchase tomorrow night, special one-night-only early deal, but the Tall Imposing But Sweet Murdochs At Harper Collins tell us it won't happen. But we will have a copy to show off, because if we didn't, we'd have nothing to read from. Contrary to yesterday's Page Six report, the whole book is not just tales of ESPN personalities' antics — honest — but hey, who are we to turn down free publicity?

Next week, we'll be getting more into the upcoming book tour — think of it as Pants Parties that start at bookstores and end up with drunken karaoke — but for now, if you're in the NYC area, you should come by the reading. It's at 8 p.m. ET at the Happy Ending Lounge on Broome and Forsyth. We promise to talk slow.
