So far, the response to You Stink! Major League Baseball’s Terrible Teams and Pathetic Players has been 100% positive, and sales have been brisk. Neither Michael nor I could be more pleased. Thank you to all of your for support.

We are now offering autographed copies for sale on our website. They make great Father’s Day gifts. Order now before it’s too late!

Yesterday, our publisher, the Kent State University Press, came to us and made a formal request that we agree to do You Stink Too! Pro Football’s Terrible Teams and Pathetic Players, and we have agreed to do so. The Press is sending us an advance contract, and we will begin work this fall. Michael and I are very excited with the reception for You Stink! and for the fact that our publisher has sufficient faith in us and in our ability to create a second book that will be as fun and entertaining s the first one was.

Stay tuned. We will keep you posted as to progress as we begin compiling You Stink Too!.

    In the next volume, please be kind to my Cleveland Browns =)

    Ditto on the Browns. Or at least give us a chapter on the first 4 decades of Steeler history = )

    I still have nightmares about Jim Brown averaging about 50 yards per carry against nt boys in Black and Gold. The last 40 years do belong to us though. Just count the rings!

    No doubt both squads merit some space in the upcoming work!

    Congratulations Eric!

    Should be some great chapters on the wonderful New Orleans Saints, including that memorable 1-15 season.

    Sounds good. Undoubtedly the 0-14 Buccaneers will make the cut. Which brings to mind John McKay’s response when asked during that season what he thought of his team’s execution – “I’m in favor of it”.

    Eric –

    I would suggest the Pittsburgh Steelers; pre-Chuck Noll. They were horrible, and the contrast with the post 1960’s Steelers is shocking!

    Good to see you are still going strong!
