Re: My Opening Day Tale
The Reds players without housing stay at the Millenium I believe; the visiting players stay at other hotels.
Oh, I almost forgot... I think Abad, Denorfia, and Encarnacion would have been thrilled for someone to ask for their autograph. They aren't jaded yet.
Your wife should have... "here's your cell phone, Mr. Valentin"... at least he'd know she recognized him but either didn't want his autograph or was thoughtful enough not to ask for it.
Great story. I probably wouldn't have asked for an autograph either, but I would have struck up some kind of conversation with them.
Soto was in good spirits during the parade; the guy next to me ran out into the street and shook his hand. He was probably just tired and cold like everyone else.
