Welcome to Troy O'Leary's Cow, a forum in which I plan to discuss the Red Sox, baseball in general, and my new baseball novel, The Curse of Carl Mays, now available on all internet bookseller sites. I'm gonna pimp it, whore it, shill for it -- posting links, book reviews, interviews, maybe even excerpts -- and hopefully, between all the pathetic exhortations [buy it! option it for a movie! make me famous!] , we'll have some fun discussing the @!*%in Sawx and the game we love.
The name "Troy O'Leary's Cow" narrowly prevailed over a number of other worthy entrants:
Butch Hobson's Choice
Kevin Romine's Lettuce
Be My John Valentin
and a name that needs no additional modification:
If you don't recognize any of these names from Sox history, well, as they say, you better axe somebody.
Anyway, welcome again. My next post will probably be about the book. Then we'll talk some horsehide. But for now, please, let Howard be Howard ...
