So this is what my friend Sara Capen Salomons posted on Facebook, when I shared the picture of Sal at the game:

Some days are just indescribable. Like the days when I get to witness real life miracles. Sal was sleeping outside when the Mets opened their season. Today? He’s watching them play. And after the game? He’ll sleep in his own bed in his own apartment.

To which I’ll add “Amen,” and “Hell, yeah.”
