On the Subject of Name-Calling and Book Cover-Judging

"Hey Daddy! Look! The Giants have a nerd on their team!"

I look up to see Tim Lincecum--reigning Cy Young winner, Tim Lincecum--at the plate.

"That 'nerd' is the best pitcher in baseball," I say. "And it's not nice to call people names."

"Oh."

"His actual nickname is 'The Freak.'"

"Whatever, he still has stupid hair."

"I dunno, it's kind of like Daddy's hair right now."

"Exactly what I said."

Kid gots smarts.
