The game of ball is glorious."

Style and Substance

The 45 YGB Bracelet, a very nifty-looking piece of jewelry that looks like a baseball's seam, is now available through the Tug McGraw Foundation.

All proceeds go toward brain cancer research.

This is a must-have for all baseball fans and all supporters of cancer research. To the best of my knowledge, everyone who reads this blog is at least one of the two!

Come on. They're only $4.50. That's just one foo-foo drink at Starbucks, ya know.

Special postscript to the Skiing Pirate: I've already ordered two for you and Splinter, hon.

2 rejoinders:

Fourth pew, center sounded off...

Side-note, probably unknown to Third Base Line: Tug's son, country singer Tim McGraw (whom you will see if you click on the link to the bracelet) had a big hit with a wonderful song called "Live Like You Were Dying."

When the writers of the song presented it to Tim, they did not know his father was dying of cancer.

Count me in for a bracelet, too.

The ADD Knitter sounded off...

Thank you very much! An extreemly wothy cause indeed!
