I do a few regular radio and online interviews during football season, so if you see any injuries to key players (or players on your fantasy team), shoot me a message on Twitter or Facebook, and I’ll be happy to talk about it!

Book I read this week: Turning Pro: Tap Your Inner Power and Create Your Life’s Work by Steven Pressfield. This is another remarkable book explaining the difference between amateurs and professionals (hint: most of us are amateurs!). Then he discusses what it takes to truly go pro and what it could mean for your life. It is amazing! Pick up a copy and read it!

Book I’m reading next week: The Signal and the Noise: Why So Many Predictions Fail–but Some Don’t by Nate Silver. I read Silver’s Five Thirty Eight blog for years when it was part of the New York Times. I often read articles from his fivethirtyeight.com site now. I am looking forward to reading his take on statistics and predictions in fields such as baseball, weather, and politics.
