Portland Sea Dogs Welcome Back Dinner 2012
This event is always huge fun. Many fans piling into the Expo in Portland.
Every player was very personalable and gentlemanly when we asked them for autographs.
At my table there as a young family with a little girl (imagine Lil Orphan Annie) and her young brother that were very impressed with my photos. They handled all the photos very carefully and had an ongoing discussion on all of them. She asked, "Can we go and get autographs of the players" I asked "Well, lets ask mom and dad" and off we went...never resting, even through dinner was we approached ALL the players again. The little girl even introduced herself and her brother to the players and asked them to put their names on the photo. What a joy to watch. I guess that is what the hobby is for me, sharing, having fun and seeing many smiles.
