|Navy son - between 2 World Series Trophies|
Having had 3 sons, sports has played a major part in my life. As a child, my Mom was a San Francisco Giant fan, back during "the day" when Willie Mays and McCovey were big. When we lived in San Francisco, she and her neighbor friends would take in a ball game, on Ladies Day. Back then, that was FREE admission. They don't do that anymore. No more Ladies Day because the feminist did not want special days. (I don't remember voting on that)
My dad was a contractor - and he worked in many of the old Giants' homes. I have autographs on coffee-stained napkins of Juan Mariachi, Orlando Cepeda, Willie McCovey, and a few more.
|I caught this photo in the newspaper - the navy son is in the background.|
One day I will share about the Loma Prieta earthquake and the world series Giants/Oakland A's game.
I love it here in this semi-rural town, but I do miss having that close access to my favorite sport teams.
