Jimmy has posted how our patron saint here at “2 Guys” is Bill Gallo, and that the inspiration for our name comes from his cartoons. Well, on the night we got to Mariano Rivera I was reminded of another newspaper cartoon, Bil Keane’s Family Circus. Sitting at Citi Field that night watching Lucas Duda “track” flyballs (and Lucas did catch them all that night) brought back memories of a recurring theme in the cartoon where Keane would show the roundabout route that little Billy would take outside when asked to do a chore. Here is one classic example of Billy out searching for firewood.
All in good fun Lucas, and for the record I would be playing you every day myself right now. At first base.
And considering how that game with Rivera ended, the only fair thing to do is add one more visual.
