Default An Unexpected Visit from Mr. October

So my Brother was working a double in NY City some where I firgot! (:
Anyways... He & his partner witness'd a Big Linemen type of Fellar,
kinda Chasen a Large Smaller man, then the Linemen dude!

They didn't think it Looked right, So they Stop'd them as they ran by.
Every thing was cool they were jus out for a Run
& the Bigger Dude was jus wanting to Keep up...

My Brother tells his Partner... 'That was Reggie Jackson!"

His Partner didn't believe him at All!!!

A wee bit later & there He was again.
So they went Over to HIM to See...
Caught HIM as they were going into a Hotel...

Sure Enough... Reggie & my Brother had a Short Awesome Conversation...
My Brother is a Huge Yankee Fan,
However He Doesn't Collect Auto's, not really ~
jus wouldn't come to his mind to ask for one!

So when Reggie Offer'd...
My Brother didn't Have Anything fir Mr October to Sign!

Then Enters the Thought of Reggie Jackson 'Authorizing Overtime!?' (:

Im sure that His Version is much more exciting then mine...

It was jus a Cool Story had to be told...

The Evidence is as Follows:

Sounds just like the egotistical bastard to force his autograph on someone who didn't ask for it. "Hey, don't you want my autograph? You must have something I can sign." LOL.

I've had Reggie sign stuff on several occasions over several years. I will admit that the Reggie during his playing days could be a bit of a prick, although not Willie Mays bad. He has definitely mellowed over the years and the last couple of times he was actually quite pleasant.
