This episode is based on my dad's giants hat that I found in his car after the fire. I was surprised to see it there and cracked a little smile, remembering him wearing it. It brings back memories however of a more turbulent time for him, and me. It reminds me of his few visits to see me run at my track races in high school...this episode shares a narrative on these memories.
In this NYT essay you can see my father wearing the hat. The story of that day isn't full described in this episode but more on that in another Giants hat post.
