Today I am informed that Eric Sponberg is hanging up his spurs by the end of this year. I find his webpage to be amazing and chockfull of information. Unfortunately, his website will be maintained only until early 2016. Get it while you can. His writings are very relatable and readable.
Be sure to check out the articles (some in pdf format). Especially read about the 'S' number and the Bruce number.
