I just opened my birthday presents from my dad, and had to share for the envious ...
-Barry Bonds bobblehead
-Willie Mays bobblehead
-A framed/mounted photo of the field just after The Shot Heard 'Round The World -- the Giants in a big pile and two Dodgers just standing there. Signed by Bobby Thomson and Ralph Branca!
-And an old baseball to practice catching with, since I've never caught a baseball in my life, not in gym, not recreationally, and not at a game. It's to go with the softball glove my dad gave me when he broke his wrist and couldn't use it anymore.
Now, if the Giants can give me a win today, I'll know the baseball universe is on my side for the next year.
