For a dead guy, Garcia’s getting around this week.

There’s also a nice collection of his art work, and a nice-looking Tumblr-style biography.
You can also buy things, including a very nifty sketch of the guys, entitled creatively “The Guys”.
All this, and the tribute deal out the Giants game tonight. I only worry about precedent: next year, they’ll have to debut Hologram Garcia.
(NOTE: Please do not debut Hologram Garcia next year or ever.)
He didn’t owe us anything
But he owed himself more.
He didn’t want to be larger-than-life, but sometimes he needed to be.
It’s easy to make fun of Garcia for choosing an outfit and sticking with it, But it was a good and strategic decision on his part.
This doesn’t work for anyone. Three cheers for black t-shirt and jeans.
Cooler than you’ll ever be.
Sometimes he was Papa Bear, other times he was Sleepy Bear…
…but no matter how friendly a bear is, he’s still a bear.
…is every day here at Fillmore South, except, you know: we don’t call him that.
