Re: Experiences w/ballplayers-Good and Bad?
Carlton Fisk was a Grade-A ******bag each and every time I tried to get him to autograph a ball over an entire three day celebrity golf tournament. After he acted like a jerk the first time, I just decided to keep following him around like the paperboy in the Better Off Dead....."Three Dollars...I want my three dollars..." to see just how aggravated he would become.
Oh yeah, my younger brother was also with me at that same golf tourney and had always grown up idolizing Vince Coleman (for some reason). When he approached Coleman to get his autograph, he was so nervous that all he thought to say to him was: "Hello Vince. Wow, you smell good..."
Coleman stopped in mid signature--I am sure he considered calling security at that moment. I crap you negative. To this day, that phrase is still holiday dinner table fodder.
