Look Into the Abyss

Look at this man, this man who just beat you.

Brian Wilson doesn't keep game balls from saved games. Brian Wilson keeps the balls he warms up with in the bullpen instead. These balls are not marked in any way, no date, no opponent, no score, nothing is inscribed on any of them.

There are 100 or so balls in Brian Wilson's locker. When asked how he tells them apart, his answer tells you all you need to know about this hulking Anti-Lidge.

"By the smell."

  1. I now know why Wilson wouldn't throw me a ball from the bullpen.

    ...and here all this time I thought it was because he's a jerk.
