I get e-mails almost every single day from people who enjoy reading the blog and want to send me gifts for my hard work. I have received everything from baseball caps and 1 of 1 autographs to well-written notes and autographed photos of Mike Andino from people who love the site. I cherish every little gift I have been blessed with.
Anytime someone asks me for my address I usually just give it out. Truthfully, many times nothing ever shows up, which is kind of funny. It certainly doesn’t bother me, after all what matters to me is that someone likes my work. Well, since my Beckett articles have been up I have been getting a bunch of extra mail.
This afternoon I made a commitment to start writing and taking photography more seriously while “closing the doors” at Wax Heaven. It was a tough choice but I always keep my word. When I arrived at the house a little earlier than usual I found a big box on my front door. It weighed a good bit and was addressed to me but had no return address. Inside the package was a Dan Uggla Upper Deck Black card (sweet!) and even more amazing was a box of 2008 SPx and 2008 Upper Deck series 2. If this wasn’t a sign that I should keep Wax Heaven open, I don’t know what is!
To the readers of the site, I apologize for the drama. I feel a little like Kobe Bryant when he demanded a trade and then took it all back within 24 hours. I now know this is what I am destined to be doing and when the writer’s itch strikes me again, well you guys will have to just put up with a 2,000 word essay on Jose Cruz Jr’s 2004 season or something else just as boring.
The video box breaks are in the works. I hope you guys enjoy. The Braves cards and White Sox cards are reserved if you know who is interested. You know I like my Marlins.
