Over the years I've learned that McCovey Chronicles is a place we assemble for more than just (Giants) baseball talk. I've come to appreciate the gathered masses here more than ever, and look forward to threads with recommendations on everything from food to music to books,
So my question: Beyond the usual of a BIG hitter for our team, world peace, a better economy, yadda yadda yadda, what do you hope will be under the tree come Christmas morning?
I was a bit greedy this year and asked for a Nikon D90 for a combined Christmas/birthday gift from my wife/parents/in-laws. For a smaller gift I'd love a black Giants hat with an orange bill like the one the team recently debuted –– not the gangsta New Era style, rather the one that Grant sports in all his pics. Some books (and the time to read them), maybe a CD or two.
My mom got the family a Wii, which is noteworthy because the last video game console I owned (and still have in its original box) was an Atari 2600.
What else is out there that's cool? I'm interested to see what you all are wishing for this Christmas.
