The GM & Me

I went down to Colorado Springs to see the Sky Sox yesterday. I was listening to the game on the radio, and I heard the announcer say that Dan O'Dowd, the Rockies GM, was in attendance. He was there to check on the performance of starting pitcher Frankin Morales.

I looked around and spotted him in the box seats behind home plate. We were both wearing the same style Rockies warm-up jackets, so I walked up to him and said, "Nice jacket!"

I chatted with him for a bit, got his autograph on my ticket stub, and took a photo. He couldn't have been nicer to me.

Now, if he'd only sign me to a contract...
