In honour of Opening Day, I've gotta pimp my good friend Dann's new book. It's the official autobiography of Tom Browning, the former Reds pitching star. Dann's not only a helluva writer but he's also a damn good poker player, having played in my home game for several years now.

Here's a blurb about the book which I'm nearly done reading. Tis great stuff.

Tom Browning, the Cincinnati Reds' ninth-round pick in 1982, went 20-9 in 1985 to become the first major-league rookie to win 20 games in 31 years. Tom posted double-digit win totals from 1985-'91, and on Sept. 16, 1988, pitched the only perfect game in Reds history.

During Cincinnati's championship season in 1990, Tom won 15 regular-season games and picked up pivotal victories in Game 2 of the NLCS and Game 3 of the Reds' World Series sweep of the heavily favored Oakland A's. In 1991 he was named an NL All-Star after a 10-4 start to the season. Tom's career was ultimately cut short when he broke his arm delivering a pitch in 1994. He finished his career with a 123-90 record, 3.94 ERA and 1,000 strikeouts.

In December 2005, he led fan balloting wire-to-wire to earn a 2006 induction into the Reds Hall of Fame. His book, "Tom Browning's Tales from the Reds Dugout," debuted in March 2006 and chronicles and his entire career.

Go hit the official website Tom Browning book to order a copy or check out Amazon.

For the record, Mr. Browning plays online poker at Party Poker. True story.

See ya'll tonite!
