My brother-in-law has probably got a pretty high 2degreesofTODD number. He's been in sales for years, so he's constantly meeting new people. Then there were the 6 years he spent as a catcher in the Braves organization, not to mention the college ball he played. Thanks to Brother Todd's baseball days, I'm 2 degrees of separation from Randy Johnson and Mark McGwire (Todd's teammates at USC). And to John Smoltz and Tom Glavine, a couple future Hall of Famers Todd caught in the minors. Todd also played for the Durham Bulls, which is how I ended up wearing this shirt in Spain last summer. We love Brother Todd. He was a damn fine Little League coach, too. Plus, he cranked out 3 extremely special kids. AND he brought a whole new level of Dewey into our life. Oh, yeah.
Do I know you? One man's attempt at a lifelong head count.
NOTE: If you think I might have a photo of you—most likely at least one great photo of you—don't be afraid to ask me to post it (firstname.lastname@example.org) along with a brief entry about how I know you. And if I've met or known you but don't have any photo evidence, feel free to send along YOUR favorite photo of you. (I'm fascinated by what that slideshow might look like.)
