He tried to get Mike Cameron to buy him a car

He saw Mike Cameron shopping around Union Square.

He said, "Hey, Mike. What're you doing?

Mike Cameron said, "I'm buying something."

Jerry said, "Good. Make it a car and give it to me."

He had lunch at SDSU

He had lunch with the girl who built Petco Park (Casey Archiba?). They ate at San Diego State. Jerry hadn't been on campus in so long that he didn't recognize it with all the new buildings. Casey was so busy that they only had time for a snack. Jerry paid for lunch even though he was hoping that Casey would.

He got stood up

Got up too early. Waiting at 8:05 for somebody from Seattle to call and talk to him. He only does this cause he's been in the business long enough to know that this is the kind of thing you do. By quarter to nine, he left. The guy from Seattle never called. He had waited for 45 minutes for the guy to call but he never did

He then went to the park. He irritated everybody for the while. He was going to work out, but he couldn't find something.

He went to the airport

He went to the airport to pick up all his relatives who are visiting. The people there kept waving at his car while saying, "Move along. Move along." He circled the airport eight times when finally he called his waiting relatives on his cellphone. They'd been waiting out front for a while and he estimated he'd been by five times with them there.

He walked Gus. Gus was very, very quiet on their walk.

He got to the park and much of his family was in attendance. His nephew with his nephew's girlfriend. His Pad Squadder daughter was there. He figured 40 of the 40,000 were his family. His in-laws were going to celebrate their 60th anniversary the next day.
