Hall of Fame Inductee (2014), Greg Maddux

I am following up something I did a couple of days ago. I want to mention that a) whoever came up with the lettering for the Braves logo is brilliant b) I think those microscope-looking devices could also pass as beer taps &, c) apart from possibly drawing Glavine, next, and/or doing something else 2014 HoF-related, I am no Summer Anne Burton. Because she's amazing! Talk about a steady hand – she uses pens and pencils for real. If you haven't followed her work, you really should. 

…umm…d) I bought the same pitching glove model that Maddux used, because I love Greg Maddux. I wasn't even a baseball fan for long enough to see many of his games. So, I pretty much looked up any that I could, and would have to wait for MLB to post parts of old games. Luckily, they aren't as stingy, anymore. Except that they're still stingy.

e) I had a huge crush on Maddux after the first time I saw older footage of him wearing glasses. But, then it turns out he peed on people, and then I didn't have a crush on him once I found that out.


...f) Still, I like him. So many people like him. So many people love him. Just the mere mention of him, or the chance to bring up something Maddux-related. The best thing about this being his induction year is that, we get to read and talk about him even more.

g) I think "Maddox" is as bad as the "its/it's" kind of mistakes. Don't misspell his last name, even if it is technically a spelling for someone's last name…and even if spellcheck suggests it.

About Jess Lemont

Jess is mostly an illustrator, here, providing occasional theme music. As her profile picture would indicate, she does not (or, may not) have a the skill required for flipping bats, so a drawing has replaced it. Really, you could also think of her as the photographer without a camera, in that regard. And, really...maybe it's best not to ask beyond this point.
