Big Al sees Harold Reynolds

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures, but I was at the Las Vegas Rao's Restaurant last evening and I saw former baseball All Star Harold Reynolds with a party of 10+. He's here for the 2008 MLB Winter Meetings. My friends and I looked at him a few times, and at the end of the evening he acknowledged us.

(I wanted to talk to him about getting fired from ESPN, but I thought it would have been bad taste.)

I thought that was pretty cool. I remember reading an article about the A's 3rd Baseman Eric Chavez. Chavez was at a hamburger restaurant and a couple of guys were sitting in the corner and they noticed him. Chavez went by and said hi. The reporter asked him why he did that. Chavez responded that as a public figure, it's his job to do it and he knows that it would make a life lasting moment for those guys. Additionally, he mentioned that all those guys would be doing is talking about how they met Chavez and how they talked to him about baseball at a random restaurant. We all have our celebrity moments where we ran into somebody like Hammer, sat next to somebody on the plane like Carlton Williamson or ran into MMA Hall of Famer, Mark Coleman, and they're pretty cool to mention them to your friends millions of times.
