Sports fans -- and public rail enthusiasts -- may have heard how larger-than-life images of San Francisco Giants' stars are now gracing Caltrains' gallery cars
It remains to be seen if this will put more derrieres in AT&T Park's seats -- but it's a wonderfully executed promotion. No better way to make Caltrain look fast than an image of Tim Lincecum in mid-delivery. There are also great shots of Pablo Sandoval, Brian Wilson, Aaron Rowand, and ... who is that?
Why, it's Barry Zito, the Giants' $126 million No. 4 starter. Only
you'd never know, because the emergency window removal panel has been
placed right over his face.
Is this a reference to how the Giants might like to pop open and flee Zito's massive, ill-conceived contract? Nah. To paraphrase Freud, "Sometimes an emergency window removal panel is just an emergency window removal panel."
