Jeff D'Amico's train of thought from 12:20 to 12:21 p.m. April 17, 2001: "I'm so excited for this photo shoot. My parents are going to be thrilled. I can't wait to get a bunch of copies of this card and send them to all the people I went to high school with. Everyone will believe I'm a real big-league ballplayer now. I have the jersey, the hat, the mitt — wait, where's my mitt? Doesn't matter. I look good. I look sharp. I look like a pro. Now it's time to show the photographer my steely stare, which will ensure I look perfect on this card. I don't want some minor thing to make me look stupid. Nope, can't look stupid this time. No chance. I shaved, trimmed my eyelashes, ironed my jersey and put on my cleanest cap. One, two, three: steely stare. That's it! Perfection. I can't wait until everyone sees how professional I look on this card."
