Thanks, Dwight Gooden, we finally won the big one

I was likely the only person in Northern California who could not stop thinking about Dwight Eugene Gooden during the San Francisco Giants' victory parade Wednesday in San Francisco. It was a young, gifted Gooden who escorted me towards my newfound greatest moment in sports.
