A pumpkin with the '83 logo on it would be bad-ass. If anyone carves it, post a pic here.

The Diamond Sock doesn't fit with the branding of the team. I hope no one downloads it.

Finally! Stencils hung way too many curves late for my liking.

Damn. I was hoping "pumpkin stencils" was a nickname for Belisario.

The Giants have someone guarding the pumpkin carving knife from Jake Peavy as we speak.

LOL- seriously, before I opened the thread, I was trying to figure out which bullpen disaster was nicknamed "Pumpkin Stencils".

Ok, tell me if I'm overthinking this. I'm pretty good with the knife, but how the hell do you carve the inside of the old English "o"? That's not going to float in space, right?

Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong, but you carve the pumpkin skin very thin in the areas of the stencil, not all the way through like a traditional pumpkin. This allows the candle light to shine through the thin areas.

The instructions say to poke holes along the edge of the stencil with a needle and then cut with a knife. Seems like the space on the side of the S wouldn't hold its shape too long either. The sock one is worse, you would end up with nothing but a sideways square.
