Brian:

Am I correct in that I remeber you mentioning you were degreed in computer science or a similar field? If so, there should be numerous corporations in the Chicago area that will pay a large portion of your post-graduate tuition while you serve an internship.

yep, i came out of CS. there are some shops that do that, but a lot of the ones i have talked to dont offer assistance like that until you have been there for a while, since they dont want to have you run off on them after they helped you get a degree. im still evaluating the possibilities of this, and id really like to get into it soon, im just not sure how soon "soon" can be.

how about them plate shoes

No. He showed me what he had available and I picked. Nice Vibram sole and heel with aggresive traction on both.

I still think that it's money well spent on the +POS. I don't care for their service so I tried the Spot Bilts this season and took a fastball off of the toe only to find out that it wasn't a steel toed shoe, but a hard toed shoe. In hindsight I wish I had just ordered another pair of the +POS. I'd like to hear what Tim Christensen thought of the Nike plate shoes he had the opportunity to try this year. Hopefully they'll be put into full production if the test group gave them favorable feedback.

I bet you didn't feel enuf vibration either.

In all seriousness, get well.

I just couldn't resist after our disagreements about proper fit and shoe size a few months ago. I put a lot of imaginary made-up stuff in that one which is also one of the reasons I enjoy posting so damn much. But you and others already knew that.
