Been anticipating getting the brand spanking new one all Autumn, not knowing that ESPN ceased publishing it!
Well, at least SI is still going, but does anyone know why ESPN decided to stop putting out these books? I'd assume that they'd be the best sellers among ANYTHING ESPN ever produces from their publishing arms?
My GOD, is everything going to cyberspace now? First TSN discontinues the official NBA and MLB guides and record books, and now this!
To say nothing about the lack of an NBA reference encyclopedia tome since Yao Ming was debuting for the Rockets, an NHL one since before that, and the year after the Colts won the Super Bowl for the NFL, and the second Red Sox championship for MLB.
Look, I love sites like Baseball-Reference.com just like the rest of us, but man, there is still something about having more than just what those sites have, without having to go to, say an ABA, WHA, AAFC, or hell even a freaking XFL website (which, along with the USFL and WFL were missing from ESPN's Pro Football Encyclopedias) website to find an obscure factoid about a long dead league.
Damn, I'm only 32 and I'm ranting about "the way things used to be!" Geez!
