Sherrill was really nice (and he wasn't wearing his MC Hammer pants). I asked him if he liked Los Angeles and he said he did. He actually seemed pretty nervous and was shaking when signing my ball. Outside, they had the Dodger ticket truck and a pitching net with a Russell Martin cutout in the back. The truck was all pimped out inside with a leather Dodger chair and and Xbox with two TVs on the outside. I asked where Snoop Dogg was and the security guy said that HE was actually the first person to drive the truck. Finally, I saw Jon SooHoo there and made sure to tell him that he takes absolutely great pictures - to which he smiled and said thanks. Overall was a fun (and hot) time. Hope Sherrill doesn't get a cramp from all the autographs - we may need him tonight! Go Blue!

I just happened to be in the Burbank area today and noticed through Vin Scully Is My Homeboy that George Sherrill was signing at Staples. I thought I actually saw Roberto leaving - red car, right? There was a good number of people already there and we jumped in line. The line moved quickly though. I heard from other people that they actually did NOT have pens for him to sign with for the first 50 people. Mind you this is STAPLES, the Office Superstore. Just go down aisle three and rip open some pens, guys! I met some great people in line too. One guy takes pictures at games and had this great shot of Loney sliding home against the Cardinals from this past series. Also met JR from JR collectibles, who was really nice.
