You guessed it, my dad got beaned in the top of the head by a flying ball. He saw through his viewfinder Garrett Atkins coming at him, closer and closer, and he was thinking, Wow, I sure am getting a great shot of Atkins ... and then WHUMP ... ball -> head. He got lucky because he was wearing one of those thick headsets and the ball bounced off the one inch of padding on the headset rather than right off his head. He is OK, no goose egg, no headache, no concussion (we think). But he's having weird nerve stuff going on in his leg. I'm going to make him go to the doctor on Monday if it's not gone (as much as I can make him do anything from SF when he's in Denver ...).
Apparently this clip has been played a bunch in Florida and Denver and he might have even gotten on ESPN but he's not sure. The announcers mentioned my dad also happened to be a Vietnam vet, its being a patriotic holiday and all.
So if anyone saw that, that's my daddy, forever putting himself on the line for his country, whether in Nam or the American pastime.
