Welcome to Bleacher Report, new writers!
KP Wee is a baseball and hockey fan who enjoys watching and discussing sports memories and issues with everyone willing to listen. I also enjoy writing; here are some of my books:
Oh So Close, Canada! Lamenting Some of the Missed Championships in Canadian Sports History, http://www.lulu.com/content/6191833
Baseball Pitchers: The Most Overrated & Underrated in the Last 20 Years (1988-2007), http://www.lulu.com/content/1729692

Showing Their Scales (fiction, published by Cacoethes Publishing House), http://www.amazon.com/Showing-Their-Scales-Three-Deception/dp/1606950223/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1220149656&sr=8-1
No Runs, No Wins, No Glory (A book about knuckleballer Tom Candiotti), http://www.lulu.com/content/3066698
I don't usually brag about myself as writing is really just a matter of self-fulfillment/personal satisfaction, but since a lot of anonymous people wonder.... well, there's your answer. And no, I don't care one bit if any naysayers read it or what they have to say.
In late Feb. 2008, I came under heavy fire from Vancouver fans because they didn't like my comments about the Canucks. Some trashed me for my personal writing goals. Well, I would now like to announce that BACK in 2007, I had already self-published three books and they were not epic failures. My three books were dedicated for my friends, amongst them Rick, Cliff, and Candace, and they all were touched and are appreciative of my "gifts." So, no, those books were not failures but they actually accomplished their original goals. I personally do not care if I sell X number of books as a true writer writes and dedicates the works to those that truly matter, his/her friends and associates.
I am not ashamed of who I am and don't need to prove anything to anyone out there. I am a people-person and I appreciate my friends, and folks who know me can attest to that. For those I have left out earlier, namely John House, Trout, and others, I still appreciate your readership and the fun times with our sports debates too. I, however, have no time for racists such as Andrew Claxton and his cohorts and anyone that sees the need to personally attack me. So those of you like that, don't matter to me.
Thank you for creating this online community where the true fans can come out and write and comment on what they enjoy.
As for my '07 books, they have been listed just to prove that I've accomplished it--and once again, I don't need anyone's approval.

Had to crawl out of my cave to weigh in on the Dodgers trade deadline deals - hope you find it worthy of your time.
One week into the baseball season and our Boys in Blue drag it back home black & blue - here's some visual evidence:
JC gives his opinion on Eric Gagne's desire to return to the Dodgers
Candy man was a quality pitcher and guy. Remember he was very active in the community working with kids - both sick and healthy.
Be happy to pass on your request to someone I know with the local library, along with the other books you've written.
Have a new article just out of the oven looking at the Dodger starting pitching. Get it while it's hot!
Off the bench with this pinch hitting appearance and hoping all is well your way I present:
For the dozen or so of you wondering what it would take to drag JC off the IR and post something new, here is the answer:
I'm back on hockey!
Please take a look at my latest article documenting Tim Thomas' rise from nothing to become one of the NHL's premier goaltenders when you get a free moment.
Q: Why does Fedor Emelianko fear the UFC?
A: Because he is a Sissy!
Check it out.
Former MLB player Eric Karros called my article into question on Colin Cowherd's ESPN Radio show yesterday.
He challenged me for a re-do: but here's my response.
I assure you, it's not just a ridiculous personal attack, but it shows that Karros was off-base with his statements.
