Memorial Day 2024


It is Memorial Day weekend and to most Americans it the beginning of summer. It is also a time to reflect and thank the servicemen and servicewomen who have died in the defense of this country. I went over to the National Cemetery at the Presidio and walked around:

The Tomb of the Unknown Solider

Say Hey: The Willie Mays Experience


Across the street from Oracle Park - Home of the San Francisco Giants is a pop-up called the Willie Mays Experience. It is dedicated to one of the baseball's greatest players- Willie Mays.  Mays came with the Giants when they moved to San Francisco in 1958 from New York and was already a star, he became a bigger star in San Francisco:

A ticket stub from Game 1 of the 1954 World Series in which Mays made his famous over the shoulder catch

The jersey's of the four teams that Mays played for clockwise from bottom right(New York Mets, Birmingham Barrons, New York Giants, San Francisco Giants)

And he has a statue outside of Oracle Park:

Mays is still alive and is 93 years old and still is affiliated with the Giants. This pop-up was really cool as it told his story as a player and as a human.
