a day for dads

happy father's day to everyone! it's the perfect day to showcase this card
which features jim bunning after his perfect game thrown on father's day sixty years ago. sixty. wow. 

i am assuming that he is being congratulated by one of his (at that time) seven children (there is another photo of his wife kissing him postgame, but her plaid shirt is sleeveless). it only makes sense for the card to show him as a father (he and his wife had two more kids in the years after the perfecto) as it ties everything together.

whether you are a father or were able to celebrate your dad in person, from afar, or in memory, i hope your day was perfect.
