Headed In A New Direction

headshot_snowglobewombacher.JPGA couple of weeks ago, I asked my vast cadre of loyal readers to assist me in a most important task — the creation of a new blog head shot.

The response to this request was robust, which I very much appreciate. Still, I have put off sharing the submissions because I am wary of seeming narcissistic. Usually, I hide this off-putting trait beneath a cloud of false modesty and groan-inducing wordplay.

But the moment for action is now. What follows are some of the new profile pics I now have at my disposal.

Boomer and Me — Spending some quality time with the Williamsport Crosscutters’ inimitable mascot:

I plan on using all of these headshots — and more — throughout the season. But, starting tomorrow, my identity will be this:

What can I say? To see my face juxtaposed onto a Weird Al album cover is a dream come true.

Thanks to Chris McConney of the Reading Phillies for the Weird Al shot, also big thanks to:

Sarah Budd, Williamsport Cross
cutters (shots 1-2), Danny Wild, MiLB photo guru (3-5), Lauren Wombacher, Yakima Bears (6-7 and snowglobe), Cameron Wengrzyn, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (8-13), Jake Goldman, Astoria Astroplaneteers (14), Allison Moore, Greensboro Grasshoppers (15), and Robert Peters (16).
