    That Dwight Clark catch probably caused me to scream the loudest I've ever screamed while watching a sporting event...

    Every time I see that picture, I think about that old newsreel of the Parisian man crying as the Germans march through the Arc D'Triomphe. That's how I felt as a 9th-grader when I saw that catch.

    An amusing side note...there's a chain of sports bars that opened a location recently in this West Texas city. They have fancy historical sports photo prints on the wall...Ali-Frazier, Reggie Jackson, etc. One of the pictures they have is of "The Catch." Kind of like having the "Flying Bobby Orr" picture in a St. Louis bar, but worse. The manager of that place needs to send that picture back to the corporate office...pretty much trumps their sneaky attempts to pose as a local sports bar.

    I love how Clark keeps the ball in a box in his closet.

    The guy looking out the window on the far left?

    Joe Garagiola.

    That's where the Giants' clubhouse was at the Grounds. Garagiola joined the team late in the year but not on the Series roster.
