I manage a busy restaurant in River North so I've met quite a few Cubs and other celebrities/athletes. My favorite was the one in my picture, my first favorite player as a kid, Andre Dawson. I was pretty starstruck even though I've met Rich Hill (right after we got swept in the 07 playoffs and we thought he was gonna be good.) On the same day early in the 2008 season I met Lou Pinella, and delivered an order to Fontenot and Marshall who were both really cool. Garza came in early this past season and I got him to sign my 09 red stars and stripes cap. He was pretty cool, he said the cold doesn't bother him on the mound but it sucks for him when he's not pitching. Also Colvin and Byrd came in together in 2010.
