The Baseball Desert

Friday, February 25, 2005


I'm off for a week of well-earned vacation in deepest Burgundy:

In my absence, the blog will be in the very capable hands of faithful reader DBF (possibly the only follower of the Oakland A's in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine), who is under instruction to share whatever pearls of wisdom he may have with the, erm, thousands of Baseball Desert readers around the world.

In the event of him suffering writer's block, I'd like to point you in the direction of two blogs I've come across recently: petite anglaise, the diary of a thirtysomething in Paris, and crinklybee, the musings of a Geordie exiled in Manchester. Neither of them have anything at all to do with baseball, but they're both extremely well-written and therefore highly recommended: you'll laugh (possibly out loud in the office), you'll cry, you'll probably add them to your bookmarks...
