Fred McGriff's train of thought during this photo shoot, from 3:50 to 3:53 p.m., Jan. 30, 1991:  "Crime Dog? I could take that McGruff in a fight anytime. ... How dare the Jays trade me for Joe Carter? Like he'll ever do anything memorable. ... This bat's getting kind of heavy. ... I hope my forehead doesn't look too big. ... This card's going to be in black and white? It's a good thing I wore my white gold chain. ... God, how many shots does this guy have to take? My finger's starting to hurt. ... Crap. I forgot to comb my mustache this morning! ... You know, that Chicken guy was right. This mesh is both comfortable AND stylish! ... Man, I knew Gwynn was chubby, but I've never seen a man eat two dozen tacos before. ... That's it. I'm gonna give this photographer a different finger."
