Yes!! When I saw the title I figured it for some sort of baseball story. I was expecting one part of the twist, but not the other. This was right up my alley.

It's a great tale. Meat and potatoes horror. Not a lot of flash, but very satisfying. Twisted Evil

Exactly....And it's done in a manner that non-horror fans could get sucked in, love it and then be outraged at the fact they just read a horror tale....hee heeheee.

I don't know why I can never remember my login here. Anyway...thanks to everyone who read and enjoyed Sliders. I had a lot of fun with that story. For some reason, sports horror stories are a very hard sell...I've written several haunted baseball stories, and only one of them did I not have trouble with that being one I got the okay ahead of time for.

That's probably not as far off as it might sound (lol) You have to publish it.

A friend and I were pretty much unbeatable over in Rota Spain for a while...but we'd end up so drunk we needed the table to steady us ... So, Ken, this scary sports issue...

So obviously the odds would be in my favor. David Niall Wilson, I challenge you to a game of air hockey!

Hello, Walmart shopper! (I have that shirt. Haha!) Good to see you here, David.

And we're doing a horror sports issue? Jock straps with teeth? Haunted mini-golf? Giants playing foosball with skewered midgets? Dart champion who hunts vampires with silver-tipped darts...oh, wait... :perv:

I actually think a themed issue like this would be cool...and David is now burdened with the task of crafting the Air Hockey Horror yarn....
