1976 SSPC #456 Joe Hoerner

I won't lie to you here - the last month or so at my chosen profession has been brutal. I've been so busy at work, I haven't even had a chance to read about the first day of pitchers and catchers. That's how bad it's been. This is serious.

Last season, whenever the Phillies encountered a rough patch, I'd feature a Kent Tekulve card in the hopes of turning their fortunes around. I even pulled out a Johnny Wockenfuss card when things looked particularly grim for the Phils.

I decided I needed to invoke my own personal mystical baseball card talisman in an effort to turn around my fortunes at work, and to stem the tide of horse malarkey that has made its way to my office door. To that end, I present a pensive Joe Hoerner in a floppy, fashionable women's summer hat. Work your magic, Joe.

Jim, I'll try to find you a fashionable women's summer hat when I'm down in Clearwater next month...

The magic is starting to work. I've been picturing my immediate superiors wearing that hat, and it helps to immediately lighten the mood.

And way to rub it in Chris!
