This weeks contest over at I Heart Faces is the color "ORANGE".
I have tons of cool pictures with orange in them, considering that orange IS my favorite color and all...
BUT, this week I feel that the "orange" story is way better than the "orange" picture.
There he was, on his death bed last march, anticipating opening day for the Giants at AT&T Park. Somehow he managed to have a laptop and credit card handy to purchase tickets for that special day that he and his wife refused to miss. His dad told him that he'd figure out a way to get him there no matter what.
But unfortunately, Blair passed away on March 24, 2010 just two weeks before opening day.
His wife, Heather, my best friend and I, fulfilled the promise that was made to him and took "him" to Opening day. Notice the little bottle in my hand. :)
As a die hard Los Angeles Dodger fan, I swallowed every bit of blue pride I had and put on an "ORANGE" and black Giants shirt to wear to opening day in honor of Blair Weber.
It was Blair's dream of the Giants winning the World Series. And as you may have recently recalled, the Giants finished off THIS season winning the World Series.
Here's to you Blair.
And may I NEVER wear ORANGE and black again!!
