Kerry Wood By the Numbers

Work, vacation, work, sickness, and work have kept me away from the blog for awhile again. I will never understand how many of you post so regularly. I have quite a bit to talk about soon and series to continue, new ones to start, National cards to show off, and trade bait to post. Oh, […]
