Does this ever happen to you?
I've been collecting baseball cards since 1985. I've got a lot of cards and I spend a lot of time organizing them. I've had them in some sort of computer database since, well, almost since I started collecting. In the past few years, I've started scanning cards and putting the scans in the database. For my readers who don't collect cards, thanks for reading, but I'm a bit crazy. My card collecting readers will understand.
Card collecting time always increases during baseball season and I like to listen to a ball game (Astros now, Phillies before I moved) while I'm working with my collection.
The other day, while I was scanning this Ty Wigginton card and listening to the Astros on the radio, Wiggy (as the announcers like to call him), hits into a fielder's choice and is safe at 1st in a close play.
I've lost track of how many times this has happened. I'll be working on a card (scanning it, putting it into the database, putting it into a binder, whatever), and the player on the card is involved in a play on the radio. And it's not always Astros (or Phillies). It happens with players on the other team. This happened a few days before with the Hunter Pence card I got in trade. Afterward, I thought that I could make a post out of the experience the next time it happened. I didn't have to wait for long.
