Tom O'Malley, 1987 Topps #154

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I went and found an O'Malley for you. Tom O'Malley was a star in the minor leagues, struggled in his various trials in the majors, and was an absolute masher in Japan. To my knowledge, he never played in Ireland.

I hope you enjoyed yourself today, no matter what you did and what your heritage may be. I have a history of March 17 adventures; in 2002, I was in Toronto with three of my closest friends enjoying ringside seats at WrestleMania. Three years ago, I escaped an especially late Maryland ice storm, slipping away to Fort Lauderdale with my father to catch a few Orioles spring training games. Tonight wasn't nearly as grandiose as all of that, but it was a fun evening nonetheless. I did a pub crawl in downtown Annapolis with my girlfriend and a friend of ours, and still made it home early enough to collapse into bed at a reasonable hour. But before I wander off to sleep, I'd like to raise a figurative glass of green beer to all of you. Cheers.

Were you at the game where they gave away green O's hats? My friend who is an A's fan wears his as a compromise when I drag him to an O's game.

Bob - You didn't catch that? I've made a few other references to the girlfriend in recent months. We've been together since November and things are going well. * knocks wood *

Pete - I was not. I got one of the purple hats on NFL Draft Day.

I knew about that. I was being a wise guy in reference to the 'friend' and falling into bed.... Nevermind. I was a poor attempt at humor not that I think about it.

Bob - I thought that may have been your intent, but I flipped a coin and guessed wrong. Sorry!
