    Isn't the point of an alias to avoid being pestered by fans/groupies? I don't think Shariff & Terry have fully grasped the purpose of an using an alias.

    A few years ago, actually probably more than a few, the Astros were in town to play the Reds. I was walking through the Westin on the skywalk level and there was Nolan Ryan sitting in a chair reading the paper. Nobody was bothering him at all. They also had signs in different parts of the hotel telling people to "respect the privacy of our high profile guests." I don't think a ball player could do that today and not be bothered by someone.
