SITE NEWS: The Philly Fan's Code on Tour!

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.

Technically, Collingswood is off of PATCO, which is a separate service from the commuter rail lines known as "regional rail" in the Philly area (there are connections between the two downtown, though). Much like the difference between PATH and the NYC subway, or perhaps the alphabet soup of different agencies that do stuff in the Bay Area.

Sorry to be pedantic; I didn't want people to get confused.

The easiest connection between the PATCO and SEPTA regional lines is Market East (11th St) to PATCO's 8th St stop, which connects via the basement level of the Gallery mall. There's also an underground connection between Suburban Station and PATCO's 15th & Spruce stop, but that's a four-block walk, and includes a couple of sketchy and dank corridors.
