Tugging on Superman's Cape...



Everyone has an "Origin Story." Superman, strange visitor form another planet, fell to Earth from Krypton. Batman saw his parents murdered. He became psycho killer, Qu'est-ce que c'est? Mitt Romney, strange visitor with a religion from another planet. Baseball Bill? Less dramatic perhaps but no less silly.

I grew up in Brookline, MA two streetcar stops from Fenway Park. At night, I could see the glow of the park's lights from my bedroom window as I listened to a Motorola tube radio under my covers. When I wasn't busy reading Supergirl comics with a flashlight or dreaming about Haley Mills (still do..) I would listen to the Sox. Everything would heat up and I would come up for air. Hard to say what got things hotter; RSox or SGirl..but some things are better left unsaid.

You forgot to mention how excited you were when the Super Girl Stamp came out and you finally got to lick her!
