Love For Sale

In honor of the retirement of Curt Schilling may we present to you some curt shilling. Yes, as Randolf Duke was wont to say in desperate times, "Sell! Sell! Sell!" You may not know it but, Professor Thom's breeds talent. Today we'll feature items produced by Thom's regulars, or "Thommies" as they love to be called. And, before you say it, I know what you're thinking: "You're just trying to peddle junk that was left at the bar. no. There will be no right shoe of Mr. Murphy and there will be no dispensed tobacco from the Big Giant Pez. These items, ladies and gentleman, are prime quality, the genuine article. So, without further ado, the first item up on the block is:

"The Rocket That Fell to Earth: Roger Clemens and the Rage for Baseball Immortality", this touching story is sure to tickle the fancy of even the most discerning baseball fan. How about a gift for Passover?Because we all know that Clemens is sure to get passed over for the Hall of Fame many times. What? Jeff Pearlman isn't a Thommy? 'Maybe so. But, there were some Thom's regulars interviewed for this book.

Up next Tim Shea's "Fenway!: "The Ultimate Fan's Guide, 2009 Edition". It's the best resource out there for every one's favorite ballpark. "Wait a minute he's never been to Thom's either." Alright already. get off my back. He will be there May 5 signing copies of his book. OK?

Here's a twofer for ya: "I Like Jersey Best", performed by Jazz great and Thom's habitue John Pizzarelli and written by your very own Comptroller of Kickbacks (indicted) Joe Cosgriff. It's under a buck! Do not miss this opportunity. (Also available on itunes.)

More music? Do you want to rock out with your sox out? Check out the new record by Thom's regulars Control Mouse.

And lastly, a shill for someone who has never technically "been" to Thom's. However, his name is often heard. You may now pre-order the lovely "A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez" by Selena Roberts. It's the heart-wrenching story about one man's struggle against himself.

Love for sale,
Appetising young love for sale.
Love that's fresh and still unspoiled,
Love that's only slightly soiled,
Love for sale.
Who will buy?
Who would like to sample my supply?
Who's prepared to pay the price,
For a trip to paradise?
Love for sale
