First off I would like to apologize, it is the off season, so I am taking most of the winter off. But about a month ago, I had a fortunate experience and I was able to meet Mets first baseman Ike Davis. It was on December 18, 2010.
The signing was scheduled to be at a Citibank from 1:00-2:30 PM. I got there just before 11, and after taking care of other business, I got on line at 11:30 AM. There were about 20 people ahead of me. After entertaining myself for about an hour, my father, who has relations with Citi, told me to come with him to, “See something in the bank.” Reluctantly, I followed him and left my spot on line. I then entered a small room filled with couches, tables, and good food. Then I realized that I was in the VIP room. At about 1 on the dot, everyone was asked to form a line. I got on line second. Then, one by one, each family was called into a room for a special meet and greet with Ike Davis. This next picture describes what happened next.
It was very personal and Ike is a very friendly man. Ike signed a few things for me, and here is a video of Ike signing for some people. Ike signed, and signed, and signed. The pubic must have been getting antsy when this happened.
Here is a hat that I got Ike to sign.
Overall, a very successful day.
I will have more entries up as the season approaches
