I don’t know what it is. I just have this way of meeting famous people. I don’t go out of my way, either. The famous people come to me! I’ve met more sports figures than anything else including, but not limited to, Reggie Jackson, Joe Montana, and you already know about Edgar Martinez.
And then yesterday I made the acquaintance of Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Bobby Engram. Number 84. What a great guy! Seriously, it’s not just me who says so. It would be super easy for me to hate on dudes who make millions playing a beefed-up game of catch for a living if they weren’t always so damn gracious and friendly. Bobby's smile in the photo is not feigned and he happily gave me his autograph – not just for me, but for my friends as well! Makes you wonder why I look so underwhelmed doesn’t it? I’m pretty sure I was actually smiling up until the moment just before the picture was taken. Ah, well. I have to keep the photo if I want the autographs to have any validity to anyone but me.
