Baseball Card of the Week: 
How badass was Bob Watson? Not only could he pull off the Rainbow Stripes and was coming off a season in which he hit .324 with 18 home runs, but he was so flippin’ rad that he had to wear sunglasses for his baseball card. Which, by the way, was taken inside in the Astrodome. A place that saw no sunlight. 
Watson is now Major League Baseball’s Vice President of Rules and On-Field Operations. I can only hope his number one rule for on-field operations is Always Be Cool.
