Eight Shopping Days till Star Time

I figure to be playing my best-of-three Funky All-Star Series®©™ the weekend of August 14-15, meaning y’all have a tad over a week to get your votes in for the series winner and combined R-H-E totals.  All entry info can be found here, and you can e-mail your best guesses to funkyball77@gmail.com. The winner will receive two home-spun funky CDs, and the contest is also open to all ’77 managers, family members, pets and avatars.  I play no favorites.

Below are the re-posted rosters, with a few late additions due to fan pressure.

AND ANOTHER THING: I’ll be appearing on the Seamheads Radio Hour podcast Monday 8/9 at 9 p.m. eastern, as a guest this time.  I’m scheduled to follow sports broadcasting legend Roy Firestone, which is like Chris Farley being asked to follow Groucho Marx, but I’ll give it a whirl.
