Of all the guest bloggers, these six guys have the best name for their blog. It Is High, It is Far, It is Caught is a tribute of sorts to John Sterling.

Here is how they described themselves: “Scattered throughout the continent, our crew consists of a lawyer, a banker, a comic book writer and assorted ink-stained wretches (a/k/a journalists), whose collective output includes various editions of “Justice League,” stacks of legal documents, a nationally syndicated business books column and the classic, belongs-in-every-Yankee-fan’s-library 1993 bestseller, O Holy Cow: The Selected Verse of Phil Rizzuto, which will be re-released this spring with the addition of all-new material.”

Here is their post. They’re the first guest bloggers to go with comedy:
