Game 67 - Sunday Afternoon, June 20th in Philadelphia
Father's Day 2010 will be remembered for good times spent with my wife, my sons, my Dad and our family. It will not be remembered for the lifeless Phillies game played against the Twins, especially since I dozed off between the 2nd and 5th innings. Wilson Valdez' solo home run accounted for the team's only run, as they managed just 4 hits against Twins' starter Carl Pavano. Roy Halladay allowed 11 hits and 4 runs over 8 innings, en route to his 6th loss of the season.
Father & Son: Night Owl paid tribute today to the Topps' Father & Son cards appearing in their 1976 and 1985 Topps sets. Two Phillies appear within these subsets - Bob Boone in 1976 with his father Ray, and Ozzie Virgil in 1985 with his father Ozzie, Sr. (Topps lists him here as "Ossie," even though I'm fairly certain he's always gone by "Ozzie".)
Happy Father's Day!
