Happy Birthday O.B. Turkey, who/wherever you are

Whoever O.B. is (was?), someone thought enough of him to send regards on the Giants scoreboard. From the evidence presented here, not many were on hand to wish O.B. well. Photo taken at Candlestick Park sometime in the mid-seventies. (Although box scores are available online, TSG is too lazy to determine the exact date.)

While we're on the subject, I suppose it's appropriate today to salute the uneaten (inedible?) turkeys free ranging in America's forests and fields. And campgrounds.
Happy Thanksgiving!

PS: since we're talking Turkey and Major League sports (we are?) TSG is pleased to announce:

You know, the Turkey is a respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America . . . He is though a little vain & silly, a bird of courage, and would not hesitate to attack a grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his farm yard with a red coat on.
