Dome Pondering Import - Matt Cain's Perfect Game

On Wednesday, June 13th, 2012, Matt Cain of the San Francisco Giants became the 22nd person in Major League Baseball, and the first in San Francisco Giants history, to throw a perfect game. The pitching feat, performed against the Houston Astros, also included the impressive notch of striking out 14 batters. Cain, recently tabbed by his peers and fellow players as baseball's most underrated pitcher in the game, finally received the attention, accolades and praise for the body of work he has put together over the years in San Francisco. Perfection should always be celebrated, and here at the DP, it always will. Congratulations to a well deserved, Matt Cain.

At the time, turning thirty meant a whoooooooooooole sort of different expectations and responsibilities. I am in that same place - a center of gratitude for the journey. My 30s have been a ride.  For me, I became a father, and I lost my father. I lost one of my best friends, yet, I gained another in my son - and then a second one just recently. I finished coursework on my second Masters degree, and I also watch
