Biggio's last game

For my birthday, Bethany and I got to go with my mom, sis, bro-in-law and nephew to Biggio's final game back in September.

Watching Biggio's last game was much sadder than I expected. I told Bethany, it hit me that I was seeing one of the last direct links to my boyhood go away. They kept showing pictures of Biggio as a rookie, and I thought man, I was just a kid, a KID, when those were taken. It was nuts, but I'm glad we were there. Josh will get to tell Joseph that he saw Biggio's final game when he was two years old.

Here's a link to my photo album from the game (some of the pics I stole from Kim), and below is a video of Biggio's short speech during the pregame ceremony honoring him.
