O, what should have been

I wanted this to be a happy recap post about the game tonight, but the "Brim Reaper" really screwed that up. So I hope to be in the mood to recap a few things I saw at the game tonight sometime this weekend. But the pain is too fresh right now, I don't have anything nice to say about what happened, so I won't say anything at all...

On a positive pre-game note, I did get 3 autographs! I got Luke Scott and Gregg Zaun, both of whom I already had autos from but had never got a Luuuuke in person before tonight.

Although you can't see the borders of this card, how perfectly located is that autograph? Luke used my sharpie to sign about 20 other autos too.

And Zaun was wrapping up signing for the fans and pointed to three people to sign for, and I was luckily the last one he picked out. He still seems like a good guy after all these years since he last played for the O's.

The player whom I still needed an autograph from and really lucked out getting since he is on the 15 day DL is Kris Benson. He was in town with the Rangers since he had to fulfill some of his charitable obligations from his Oriole days. Anna Benson was there too, and she was wearing only a mildly inappropriate outfit!
How great is this card?!? That is a perfect orange color for an O's card and a great signature to top it off!

I thought that lucked out was a bad thing.
Anyways, nice job on the autographs. I am still waiting for your C's to see if I actually have something that you need.

I think that lucked out is a good thing, but I guess either way I got lucky!
And I finally scanned my C auto's last night so will be posting over the next week. I hope that now that baseball season is in full effect that I will have more time to post all my current autos! Thanks buddy.
