The gym insisted the party and the weight machines be separated from one another. So the Dad, a former Broadway set designer, made a Mets outfield wall around all of the machines. And the Mom had solicited congratulatory notes from ballplayers or all races and religions and from sports celebrities such as Chris Berman (“Congrats! You went All the Way!”), which were posted on the wall. I spent all night being entertained by a professional magician friend of theirs seated at my table, who did card tricks for me.
