    Players I met today...

    AND received autographs from:

    Wily Mo Pena
    Felipe Lopez
    D'Angelo Jimenez
    Brandon Larson (sweet guy... even asked me a few questions and chatted with me for a bit)
    Tim Hummel (really nice and friendly)
    Jung Keun Bong (a little shy, but very nice with a great smile)
    Phil Norton
    Mike Matthews (a lil grumpy... I felt really bad, I mean, he didn't have to sign if he didn't want to...)
    Gabe White (awesome guy... very friendly and chatty... was on his cell when he saw me waving at him, but even put his cell and everything he was holding down on the ground to sign for me and even chatted for awhile about how glad he was to be back and what a great group of guys the Reds are)

    AND

    ...........

    BARRY LARKIN!!!!!!!!!! (The poor guy was on his cell phone in the hotel lobby, and I didn't want to interrupt his convo. I literally had to hold my stepdad back from trying to get his attention. He disappeared for awhile, then came walking through again, still on his cell. This time, my stepdad had enough and waved him down. I apologized profusely for interrupting his call, but he was really, really nice about it. He signed an autograph for me, and even posed for a couple pictures!!! I am in absolute heaven... If only he knew just how much his kindness and tolerance meant to me...)



    Also got an autograph from Marty Brennaman... Seemed like such a nice guy... Very friendly and accomodating!

    Very cool - you'll have to show the pics when you get 'em developed/downloaded.

    I'll be at the game on Thursday!! I told Brandon Larson, "You guys better sweep the Mets!" He seemed to get a kick out of that and responded something like, "Yeah, we'll sure try!"

    That's totally awesome. Too bad ya missed out on Freel, though - the greatest player of our generation, bar none. :mhcky21:

    Re: Players I met today...

    Thanks for the positive replies, everyone!! I just got back from seeing the Broadway show, Wonderful Town. As we were entering the hotel, I spotted some more players!! Unfortunately, I didn't have any of my autograph stuff (no pen, nothing to sign... Doh!!), but I did get to speak briefly with Todd Jones and get a picture with Jason LaRue!!! LaRue was so friendly... My mom got all flustered trying to take the picture (good-looking guys tend to have that effect on her ), so Jason laughed and said, "Try looking through the eye hole!" :MandJ:

    Anyway, both Jones and LaRue were very sweet and told me to enjoy my stay here in NYC. I am so loving this vacation!!! Tomorrow, I'm going shopping for my birthday, then we're seeing 42nd Street (the show, not the actual street ).
