Words do not do justice.
I remember when I first heard the Giants had signed Aubrey Huff. I’d had to work a very, very, very long overnight shift at work and got home just as the sun was rising. Internet junkie that I aim, I couldn’t go to bed without checking Twitter first. I saw the Giants had signed Aubrey Huff, was completely underwhelmed, and promptly went to bed for three whole hours.
If only I’d known then how awesome Aubrey Huff really was. I started coming around to liking this guy when he hit his inside the park home run, and now, well, I love the dude. And his rally thong.
I love that - although print is supposedly dead - people still run out in the morning to pick up a paper after a momentous occasion like last night’s Giants win.
Can’t wait to see the photos from tomorrow’s parade!
Dave Eggers was at the first game of the World Series, sketching whatever he saw. I haven’t looked much into his illustrations or work (I picked up a McSweeney’s once in high school and felt too immature to read it). But I know the guy’s a genius. These pieces capture people without making them look too human or cartoonish and let their words speak for themselves. Each of them can stand on their own and say something, without giving us a billion details.
