    The Round BusHard to believe 2012 is coming to an end. We have no recollection of it beginning, as we did not exist. But as 2012 rumbled through its infancy, the Barn took shape. We had no illusions of grandeur, no wild fantasies of fame and fortune. All we wanted to do was create a place for literary sports pieces, something we believed was absent online and in print. We also wanted unpaid interns and travel expenses, and those things will come in good time. We thank you all for taking the time to stop in from time-to-time. We’ve enjoyed your visits, and we hope you have as well.

    Perhaps the sweetest surprise was the warm and enthusiastic manner in which our community has supported us. Our contributors have been old friends, and new, from every part of the country, with varied affections for sport. We thank them for their additions to the Barn, and their support. We love you all, and there ain’t a season long enough to accomodate our appreciation. We hope to see you all, somewhere, sometime soon, to raise a glass in thanks.

    For the last Round Bus of 2012, The Barnstormer has asked it’s generous and talented contributors to send us their notable sports moment from 2012. enjoy them, as we have, and be sure to click the links to see what each is up to as the year closes, and a new one begins…

    For the last time in 2012, let’s get on the damn Bus…

    First up: Marty Sartini Garner…
