It looks more like a bunch of guys arguing about whether or not Harry Potter is the best book ever. Or maybe whether the new episodes of Star Wars live up to the hype. In other words, it looks like a hardcore nerd fest, but you can make the call.So whats a SABR meeting like?? A bunch of guys sitting around drinking beer and talking about baseball history?? If thats the case I am in. I can probally talk with more intelligence about the 1970 Reds than I can the 2006 Reds.
That looks like Tom Tippett and Luke Kramer from Diamond-Mind over on the right side.

Believe me, I appreciate their work with all my heart, but I don't think I'd want to hang with them.Do you read books on Baseball?
If so these are the guys who write most of them, so beat on them if you must but know this.
How long does it take an order for membership to register? I just purchased one, and I know I submitted the right e-mail address, because I received a confirmation from SABR. Is there anything I need to do to finalize it?

Hey, I like movies like The Conversation and My Dinner with Andre. But, I'm a parent too, and Harry Potter rocks. In both print and the theaters.
I also read comics, the Art of War, and anything by Piers Anthony.
And I started reading Bill James in 1985. I'm not a member of SABR, but when my kids finally move out, I probably will be.
I'll also have 20 subscriptions to Marvel Comics.
