Hello Sports Fans

I would like to thank Sophie for inviting me to join Pop Goes the Library! My name is Susan Quinn and my background as a librarian is in youth services, young adult, and reference and instruction. This is just a quick post. Right now there is a commercial break in the NFL football games between the NY Jets and Detroit Lions and the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (I flip between games). Later it will be more football and the World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Detroit Tigers. This week I stayed up until midnight with countless others watching game 7 of the National League Championship Series. I was rooting for the New York Mets but it just didn’t happen for them this year. Speaking of this year, not only does New Jersey have a good library school it now also has a winning college football team. Rutgers is 7-0 in the Big East (along with Louisville and West Virginia). Go Scarlet Knights. Oh yes, I will be writing about sports for Pop Goes the Library, among other things. More later. Back to the games.

    Hey, Susan - what a great idea! Growing up with three brothers and a crazy sports loving father, I can appreciate the pop culture importance of sports! My 8 year old son discovered pro baseball this year and we too watched the Mets go down. The ride was fun while it lasted.
