That's right, folks, I will be touring -- after a fashion -- in support of The Philly Fan's Code, which is available right now on Amazon and soon at Delaware Valley Barnes & Noble stores.
On Saturday, October 1st, I will be at the Collingswood Book Festival in Collingswood, New Jersey, from 1 PM to 2 PM, and probably a little before and after. I will be sharing the Temple University Press tent with Allen Barra of the Wall Street Journal and legendary Philly radio personality Jerry Blavat, who is both the Geator with the Heater and the Boss with the Hot Sauce.
The Collingswood Book Festival is the largest in New Jersey, I think, and is always a great time: food, stuff for kids, and dozens of national and regional authors. It is just a 10-minute regional rail ride from Center City Philadelphia.
On October 22nd, time to be determined, I will be at the world famous Treehouse Coffee Shop in Audubon, New Jersey, home of Randy's bacon brownies, which are the only brownies or bacon products I have ever considered too insane to ingest. (The regular and espresso brownies are great, though.) That's the home game, where I hope to catch up with many of my past students and such, but all are welcome. Randy is related to Mike McCarthy somehow, so Packers fans are extra welcome.
I will announce later dates, including a few Chickie's and Pete's appearances, when they are closer.
Of course, bring a Football Outsiders Almanac and I will sign it, talk football, and apologize for any misspellings.

There will be four teams in the inaugural College Football Playoff at the end of the season. What common characteristics will distinguish these teams above all others?
