Pic of the Week

A young Twins fan takes a photo of Rod Carew
with an iPad2 outside the church in Peoria, Ariz.,
where the Harmon Killebrew funeral was held.

There are several things about this photo for me to think about, not the least of which is the technology the girl is employing.

But the big one, for me at least: Rod Carew last played in the major leagues in 1986, almost 25 years ago.  Not only is she too young to have seen him play, her dad (depending on how old he is) may not remember seeing him play. Yet she knows enough about him to want to get his photo.

The thread of baseball, tying the generations together.
