Who's making Aliyah

Scott Adams is not. Football and Sun and Shadow is. All those text books, taken faithfully from house to house, never opened since finals, are not. Fever Pitch, by Nick Hornby and Football Against the Enemy are.

We began the process of simplifying our lives tonight, going through bookcases and playing Keep or Toss. People Magazine Seinfeld Edition, Toss. The Detroit Lions, Keep.

Shmuley Boteach and Dr Judy are not making the trip. Hard Tackles and Dirty Baths, an idside story of football's golden era, approved for Aliyah. Of course Sports Illustrated: The Football Book, in.

And so it went. Judith Krantz and Mark Twain, out. Lions Pride , in.

Mark Twain and Erich Segal, Toss. Talkin' Tiger Baseball, Keep.

The Long Season, the first book ever written by an athlete, is making the trip. So is Final program from Tiger Stadiums last game. Tim Allen and Paul Reiser are staying stateside along with Erich Segal.

Chicago Bears History will travel with us. Danielle Steele books are staying in Detroit.

When the smoke had cleared, and we had purged more than half of the books we had collected over the years, not a single sports book was left standing. Yes, How Football Explains the World is coming with. In fact, all things Lions, Tigers, and Bears are. Everything else is up for grabs.
