  1. You had me at the White Sox. I found you through the A to Z Challenge with my Random Thoughts blog but I actually have a sports related blog as well, mainly about White Sox cards. Wish I would have thought about the idea for that blog. Looking forward to what else you throw up for the challenge.


    1. Thanks! I want to try and get some of the guys who have fallen out of the conversation. That would be most of the teams from the late Sixties and the Seventies.


  2. I wonder if there will be any British sportsmen or women in this chllenge. I will read with eagerness =) A-Z lister here from Smurfin’ The Web. Good luck =)


  3. Though I am not a sports fan myself, I am happy to see the subject during the challenge! I have to say it isn’t something I saw a whole lot of last year! 🙂 And this is pretty neat to read about. 🙂

    1. I got the idea from The Armchair Squid ( who did baseball-related themes the last two years. It looks like he’s doing comic books this year. Good luck to you as well!
