Never saw the full picture before.

The Giants were my home team growing up in Berkeley.  Saw many a game at Candlestick from when it was a brand new ballpark.  The first thing I think of the team in those days are the three M's.  Mays, McCovey and Marichal.  What a special team they were and you knew it back then, even as a little kid.  Jack Sanford, Orlando Cepeda, Matty Alou and later his two brothers.  There was also this guy named Perry back then as well.  What a treat and surprise when he came to the Indians along with Frank Duffy a year after I moved to Cleveburg.  Made moving to an AL town easier to digest.  I have a special place in my heart for Mays, the team and all the guys who were on it back then.

{#Meditate}

Edit: and after looking back a little deeper, what I remember with perspective is that it was never about Willie.  It was always about the team.  Everyone knew who he was and how great he was in real time and there was more of a gratefulness that he was on our team, part of our team.  Willie just did and let his playing speak for him.

Into Iron Butterfly as a kid when they were a local act getting started in L A.  Senior year in HS saw them live at the Electric Factory in Philly, '69.  A full hour long version of Inna garage in toledo was played that night.  Medication that night was also most appropriate for the show.

Wow, to young. I saw them live at the Mill Run Playhouse in Glenview, Il when I was a teen.
