I admit it, I created this blog to sell books. Hopefully lots and lots of books. My second one, "Arnie & Jack: Palmer, Nicklaus, and Golf's Greatest Rivalry," is out this week, and I'm hoping Gary Player isn't the only one who buys it.
Sports Illustrated is running an excerpt in its Masters preview issue, which only means I've extended my SI subscription for life. In three months, after I've harassed every colleague in the business into plugging "Arnie & Jack," I'll have fewer friends than Eliot Spitzer.
So there you have it, a full confession. I've entered the blogosphere with something to sell. Imagine that.
Meanwhile, in between my self-serving blogs on all things Palmer and Nicklaus, I'll actually submit posts that will have no impact on my bottom line (coming soon: there's no 'i" in "team" but there is one in "Riley" (as in Pat) and "hypocrite" (as in Pat). Imagine that, too.
But just in case you missed the 17 other purchase links on this blog, you can buy "Arnie & Jack" here.

Thanks for stopping in. Hope you'll be back.......Ian O'Connor
