These lovely young lasses ditched their philosophy midterms and bared their midriffs at the Giants victory parade yesterday in downtown San Francisco. They spelled out P-O-S-E-Y in support of their favorite young catcher, former Florida State Seminole Buster Posey, a candidate for the National League Rookie of the Year award. Everything is coming up Posey lately, which begs the question: why is this 23-year-old soon-to-be superstar with the Tiger Beat good looks and aw-shucks charm already married?
Buster, a native of a rural Georgia town that only recently got its first supermarket, married his high school sweetheart last year. What a great story for a happy young couple! Local boy makes good, comes home, gets hitched to the girl next door. And then just 18 months later, half the female population of the greatest city in the USA is going absolutely gaga over the kid.
Here's wishing good luck and many happy returns to Buster and his good ladywife. The temptations of the road (and, I guess, the home crowd, too...giggity) are many in number but the path of the honest man is righteous and true.
