Lang's New Book

My longtime friend Lang Whitaker has a new book coming out next week:

In the Time of Bobby Cox: The Atlanta Braves, Their Manager, My Couch, Two Decades, and Me

A Cappella Books is sponsoring a book signing at Manuel's Tavern on March 8 at 7 o'clock.

Funny that the signing will be at Manuel’s Tavern. The Atlanta SABR chapter meets at Manuel’s, I’m on the email list. I’ll have to let them know about the signing.

On March 8 Will plays in a doubleheader at East Cobb, his first games of the season. C, A, and M finish up class in Woodstock at five, and A & M have class in Johns Creek from 6:30-8:30. With only two cars, it’ll be tough for me to make Manuel’s (unless it rains!).

Matthew’s basketball season just ended Feb 13. He’s the type to do whatever he puts his mind to. He loved it the whole season, but really only began to apply himself toward the end…getting more involved in the offense. At the last practice he finally started shooting more, then in the last game he finally made his first basket. He also got 7 rebounds in the game, after only getting a high of 2 in any previous game. I just put some pictures of him up on Facebook.

He almost signed up for the JFBC spring league, but instead signed up for a theater class instead, with Anna. At the first class they had to sing a quick, unprepared solo. Matthew sang a Switchfoot song, the Company Car song.

This summer Will is a camp counselor at Camp Highland in Ellijay. We won’t see him much, except some weekends.
