      Went to Rockiesfest today, had a blast. Got the following autos:

      Tyler Anderson
      Nolan Arenado
      Brandon Barnes x2
      Chad Bettis x2
      Charlie Blackmon x2 (signed one card as "Chuck Nasty")
      Vinny Castilla
      Jhoulys Chacin
      Tyler Chatwood x3
      Charlie Culberson
      Daniel Descalso x2
      Steve Foster
      George Frazier x3
      Carlos Gonzalez
      Nick Hundley x2
      Jeff Huson x2
      Rene Lachemann x2
      DJ LeMahieu x2
      Boone Logan
      Tyler Matzek x2
      Tom Runnells
      Walt Weiss
      Eric Young Sr. x2

      Rockies do a really good job with their fanfest. Lots of stuff for the kids so my oldest has something to do to pass the time while I hunt for autographs. Plus they do a garage sale where they sell memorabilia/merchandise at a deep discount. Picked up a Rockies sidewalk banner ~2'x5' for $15 which I thought was a steal. They had some seats for sale starting at $150 but I held off as my man cave is getting kinda full.

        I did a baseball trip from NC to Ohio and Kentucky over the weekend.

        On Friday at the Wright State Baseball Banquet, I nabbed Scott Rolen twice.

        On Saturday, I went to the Reds' Caravan in Dayton. Big mistake as there were over 1000 people there. Very little there.

        Jim Day 1/1
        Jeff Piecoro 1/1
        Bryan Price 1/1
        Todd Frazier 2/2

        I left Dayton and headed to snowy Ashland, Kentucky. I got there about 4:30 and there were probably 400 people there. Great luck there and it made up for the Dayton disappointment.

        Thom Brennaman 1/1
        Eric Davis 2/2
        Sam LeCure 5/5
        Tucker Barnhart 5/5
        Kyle Waldrop 3/3

          The nice thing about Rockies fan fest is that it opens up at 8:30am for season-ticket holders and then at 12:30 for the general public. I'm not a season ticket holder but I know someone who is so I was able to get in early before most of the crowd.

            My son and I got to meet with Darryl Strawberry at the annual Mercer University Baseball "First Pitch Classic" dinner.

            He gave a really nice inspirational speech about his personal struggles and acceptance of his faith. After the dinner he hung around and talked and took pictures with fans, including his son who plays basketball for the University.

            I gave my son an '84 Topps rookie card for Strawberry to sign but we did not want him to sign the actual card. When he tried to take the card out of the plastic sleeve, my son (who's 10) almost jumped across the table telling him to just sign the sleeve. Strawberry said, "You sure little man. This is a rookie card here." When my son looked at me for reassurance, Strawberry asked who's card it actually was.
            If I had only spent a tenth of the time studying Physics that I spent learning Star Wars and Baseball trivia, I would have won the Nobel Prize.

              Did Rangers' Fan Fest a few weeks back. My wife helped me out on half of them. We only did alumni since we didn't win any of the big names and I didn't feel like waiting in a long line for some back of the roster scrubs.

                Emergency Catcher, I wish that I had known that you were going. I would have compensated you to get me an OMLB signed by Cecil Espy. Oh well...maybe next year.
