…and sometimes you’re just wrong, as I was when I thought my BP chat was on Monday at 4 PM. It’s Tuesday at 4 PM EST, two hours after the Veterans Committee voting results are announced by the Hall of Fame. If there’s a silver lining to the fact that I was all sugared up with no place to go this afternoon, it’s that we discovered a malfunction in BP’s chat system which was sending any questions readers had left into a parallel universe, so my Chicken Little act to the BP tech crew was slightly less embarrassing than it would have otherwise been. The bottom line is that if you dropped by to leave a question before 4 on Monday, it’s gone daddy gone, so please resubmit it.
The chat won’t be an epic, as I’m scheduled to make an appearance on XM Radio 175, “On Deck” with Chuck Wilson at 6:25 Eastern, discussing the VC vote. Chuck had me on back in January, on the occasion of the Hall of Fame BBWAA ballot; he’s a knowledgeable, enthusiastic host who’s a fan of BP and who does his homework, asking substantial questions and listening to the answers. We talked for 27 minutes and it was the most fun I’ve had on the air (you can hear the results here and here). This one won’t be as long but I’m looking forward to it just the same.
