More of what you were saying about the real-life superhero.
The saga of BatKid—a five-year old leukemia survivor named Miles who wanted to become Batman really, really bad—has captivated the world today. (That's thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation, remember.) It felt like the entire city of San Francisco turned out to cheer him on as Miles saved the Giants' Lou Seal from the clutches of the dastardly Penguin this afternoon, before being presented the key to the grateful town at City Hall.
Here's round two of what you were saying on Twitter this afternoon (Click here for our first Twitter round up):
@the_blueprint: batkid carrying out batman's mission (become a symbol of hope) in real life. he's not playing batman. he. is. batman.
@Nelsormensch: Okay, I kinda thought the whole "Lou Seal" thing was an Arrested Development joke. That's a real SF thing, eh?
