(Today is "Moment of Frustration Day." Again, I did not make this up. But I certainly could have. Still, I don't know how we're supposed to limit this to just one day a year. Plenty of frustration to go around. Anyway, let's turn our attention to something more pleasant. It's Cardboard Appreciation time. This is the 85th in a series):
I've got a lot of cards scanned. But for some of them I have only a little bit to say. So I figured "why not put them all together here and maybe I can get some answers?"
So here are some cards, from the Wondering Night Owl:
Is this the tightest head shot in the history of baseball cards?
Is this the most awkward uniform number placement in the history of baseball cards?
If I told you I once owned this jacket, except that it didn't feature the "Astros" name line, would you think less of me?
One of these players has plead guilty to federal charges. The other hasn't. Yet we hold the guilty one in higher esteem. Why is that?
Did Nick Swisher obtain his personality from his father (shown here) or his mother? And most importantly, can he give it back?
Does this still look weird to you?
How many home runs will he hit against the Giants? Please phrase your answer in the form of double figures.
Is Larry Walker sinking?
Finally, if talking to Garry Templeton was like talking to a brick wall, then would this photo be redundant?
That is all.
Thanks and good night.
