Tommy Lasorda arrived. Fans asked him to sign and he said that they will set up a table and to go start a line. Fans started running.

And here's the table.

About ten minutes later, Lasorda arrives. I was thinking to myself how long will it take for a fan to get Lasorda to blow up. And it was the first fan! He asked for a picture and Lasorda yells "No time for a picture, can't you see the line. No time, c'mon *&^%$#". Classic Lasorda. Just give him your item, say please and get out! Kinda like the Seinfeld episode, "No soup for you".

Lasorda seemed to like my son. And my son is most likely thinking "He has gray hair, looks like grandpa".

Something embarrassing happened to me today. A fan asked me for a autograph. My friend laughed. My brother in law laughed. My wife laughed. Everyone is laughing. I believe his name was Jeff. Enjoy the autograph.
