It was extremely short notice so I didn't have time to gather up cards to somehow make that happen a few hours after reading that ridiculous idea.
But Fuji is a good blogging friend and I didn't want to dismiss the idea so before I get to showing off some pudding, here is my food journal for the day
I started the day off with some Cinnamon Toast Crunch
The back of Andrew's 2013 Topps card talks of how Cutch toasted pitchers in 2012, specifically a 50 at-bat span when he batted .560 and crunched 7 HR.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch is good!
In the afternoon for lunch, I ordered a Pizza Hut big box to share with the lady of the household as I watched the Steelers play against the Broncos.
On the back of Cutch's Bowman Chrome card, it discusses that he is also a pizza lover.
And yes I do sometimes put pineapple on my pepperoni pizza. It is a topping I recommend.
For dinner, I finished up with baked ziti.
Look on the back of a 2018 Bowman card featuring Andrew McCutchen and you can see that he is a fan of baked pastas too.
I never had baked spaghetti, but evidently Cutch makes a mean plate.
Finally we finish with dessert.
And alas, it was almost a perfect circle to where it all began.
Unfortunately I don't have any cards that reference pudding. You win Fuji, you win!!!
Wait, what's this????
Emerging from the Pirates Dugout?
Is that significant to Pirates fans?
Does that have anything to with pudding?
Why yes it does! It ties in with this angry looking man who became baseball's first 300 game winner and the most pitching starts in a season (75), James "Pud" Galvin.
"Pud" pitched for Pittsburgh from 1885-1892. He is the franchise all-time leader in wins and was elected into the Hall of Fame in 1965 as part of the veterans committee.
Wanna guess his birth date?
Is "Pud" an acceptable tie in to pudding?
I'll let you decide...
Leave a comment below and tell me what else you would like to see in the coming days leading up to October.
I will announce the 1st contest winner tomorrow.
