Re: Anyone have any good heckling stories?
A good friend of mine was heckling Griffey down the third base/outfield during a Sat afternoon game a few years ago. The game was rain delayed which allowed extra tailgate time...well you get the idea. My buddy was wearing a Griffey jersey but Griffey dogged a first inning pop fly in the first, and he started to relentlessly remind Griffey he had to hustle every play. This went on for at least three solid defensive innings.
Well, that was the game Griffey threw out a runner at third or home (can't remember) took off his glove and pointed to my buddy that he had 10 gold gloves how many does he have. Later on, he also grabbed his sports cup and signaled over to us. Later in the game, Griffey made the throat slash up to the booth and by Monday, he was traded to Chicago.
A few weeks later, I was at a neighborhood party, when a neighbor who happened to have been traveling to Chicago on a business call, starts to describe a story on sports talk, saying the interaction in right field with a fan started the snowball to the trade. I had to say, well you know that guy was my buddy ...
