Galaxies 12, Giants 2, Twins 1

I saw the Giants beat the Twins, behind Ryan Vogelsong’s stellar mound outing, 2-1, but also enjoyed snapping some shots of Frank Chu, whose cryptic messages were the inspiration for the naming of the 12 Galaxies nightclub in SF, where I first met Matt Gonzalez.  Frank Chu reminds me of the character from Tom Robbins 1990 novel “Skinny Legs and All”, Turn Around Norman, perhaps mixed with Wallace Stegner’s story “The Chink”, perhaps mixed with the the guy in “Adventures of Huck Finn” who breaks into a print shop. Laughing Skid is a web-hosting and events initiative, by Scott Beale.
