Thanks to Husker of Corn Todd, we had gotten wind of a special appearance by Matt Kemp at Bank of America months ago. But it was postponed and darkness reigned over the land. Until late last night.
There was internet chatter. Oh so much chatter. A Dodger will be at a bank. More news to come.
And come it did, in the form of MATT KEMP AT MY LOCAL BANK OF AMERICA! Win and win together again.
This morning, the Delino and a few dozen Kemp / Simmons fans waited outside patiently for convenient checking deposit and the five tool phenom.
And right on time, Kemp showed up in style.
The crowd roared like a lion as Kemp appeared. Soon, we were all ushered into the Bank, with plenty of mini baseballs and Cracker Jacks on hand...
...greeted by BofA's finest all in their Dodgers garb.
Best part, my Bank of America card meant I could skip ahead of the non-BofA plebeians and get one step closer to the man himself: BARRY SIMMONS
Who truly was the man since he gave me a signed Kemp baseball, which will become property of Delino Jr oh too soon.
Kemp was humble and friendly, listening to my sage advice on how to utilize all five of his tools. He signed one of of my, I mean my son's, Dodger Sundae Cups.
A great way to spend 25 minutes on a Thursday late morning. Thanks to Barry Simmons, Todd, Twitter, Matt Kemp and all the anonymous tipsters for getting me to such a great little event for the fans.
By the way, I have been a customer of Bank of America for over ten years. Just want that out there.
