First off, congrats to my nephew Mike on his first-ever book, available now on Amazon via www.100whatifs.com! I’ve thought about doing some writing of my own, but I’m guessing there isn’t much of a market for strategies on how to win your office Stanley Cup Playoffs pool. Which, I might add, I have done for four years in a row. Sure, only one other guy does it, but why let a lack of enthusiasm get in the way of success.
