    Man this is totally brilliant. Makes me wonder if audio is your medium. It was NPR-good. The material I also enjoyed, of course. I didn’t realize until about 4 minutes in what this was… And then I scrolled up to see the ticket and was like oh, holy shit, he was at the perfect game. I was at the Mike Witt game, oddly enough

  2. Thanks, man. I really appreciate it. I’m enjoying the audio stuff, and will be doing more of it. My mom and I are statistical oddities. There’s been less than 30 perfect games pitched in the modern era, so it would be a rarity if we’d been to one perfect game. As it happens, Mom and I were at the Mike Witt game, too. So, I’ve seen two perfect games in my lifetime. Again, that’s statistically nuts.
