Random goodies

First off, much thanks go out to Chris at Gorilla vs. Bear and Dodge at My Old Kentucky Blog for lookin’ out for this rookie. I promise Chris — and anyone else interested — an NFL post with my vinyl-to-digital MP3 of the Super Bowl Shuffle when training camps open at the end of July. Be on the lookout, for it also includes the “Extended Vocal Mix.” For the DJs, there’s an instrumental cut, too. If that doesn’t keep you coming back, I don’t know what will. My new circle of cyberpals includes Peter at tmwsiy*, another suffering Cubs fan.
