I will say that I definitely pass out as soon as I hit my pillow.
As I write this, it's Tuesday night and I'm taking a break from grading papers. Just thought I'd throw down a quick post. I missed Music Monday, but I didn't want to let another GWYNNsday slip by me. Here's a card that I picked up from one of Cardboard Collection's "Affordable Group Breaks". A bunch of boxes of Topps Stadium Club, this one from 1995...
This is a "Virtual Reality" parallel. I don't know what that means. Of course, that's not what sticks out when looking at this card.
What's with that huge bat? The year before, Tony won his 5th NL Batting Title with a ridiculous .394 average in a strike-shortened season, so maybe this is some sort of award ceremony? Why is Tony sitting on that huge bench by himself? Is he awaiting his teammates to help him haul away that branchless tree that's lying in front of him? If it is indeed a celebration, it seems to be of little consequence to Mr. Padre, who can barely manage a smirk. Probably thinking about that night's pitcher, going through the video tape in his head.
Anyways, this card reminded me of one of the stories that I read to my daughter when it's time for her to go to bed.
Hope yaller havin' a GWYNN-tastic Wednesday.
