1970 Topps #90 Tim McCarver

While watching ALCS Game 5 and catching up with some of my favorite baseball card blogs, I came across something horrifying. Tim McCarver has released a CD featuring his personal renditions of Songs from the Great American Songbook. To make matters worse, Amazon is currently running a special which gives buyers a discount when Tim McCarver's new CD is purchased together with Chris Wheeler's new book.

Before any friends or family reading this blog get any crazy ideas, let me make this clear: Please don't buy this CD for me for Christmas, even as a gag gift. Seriously. Don't do it.

If you had waited 6 more days, Halloween seemed like a better time to write about pumpkinhead! :)

Are you using reverse psychology? You really *do* want the album, so you're telling people *not* to buy it?

Jim said...

Absolutely no reverse psychology here. This is an genuine plea for restraint.

I hear ya! Maybe it's too late!

NOOOoooo!!!

(I gotta believe at least one of these Tim McCarver songs will end up on the next Golden Throats compilation.)

I think you have to have it. It would be great to play at World Series parties!
