the latest addition to my desk at work

My desk is a cluttered mess despite my efforts to keep it tidy. But I did find room for this baseball souvenir a friend gave me on my recent visit to Washington. He'd gone to Pittsburgh for a hockey tournament and went to a Pirates game at PNC Park, where he received the following as a free giveaway:

It's a figurine of Chuck Tanner, the manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates 1979 World Series Championship team. The team is commemorating the 25th anniversary of the last Pirates team to win a championship. At the rate the current Pirates are going, it might be 25 years before they win another World Series.

(I took the picture with the camera in my Treo 600, which accounts for the poor quality.)
