So today I'm in the Cherry Hill mall walking out of the Apple store after getting a replacement for my broken phone and as I'm strolling along I walk right past none other than Domonic Brown and an attractive young female by his side. I'm ready to make a scene, but I say "nah he's with a lady I won't disturb him." But then all of a sudden the woman says something to him and walks in some clothing store as he continues walking in the mall. I figure now is my chance cuz he's gotta have some time to kill while his ladyfriend is in there spending all his money (I'm Brown's age and I know how long it takes girls around our age to shop). So I casually stroll up to him (I'm wearing a Phillies shirt mind you) and I say, "Hey man, I'm a huge fan, can I bother you for a quick picture?" (I dont have a pen on me for an autograph) and he sorta slows down and mumbles under his breath something like "No I can't do that" and walks away. Unbelievable! No one else was even around us. I've seen him play in AA and AAA and was at the D-Backs game where he made his big league debut and I can't even get two seconds for a picture! Hmph!
All I can say is he better get used to it cuz when he becomes an every day player casual fans are gonna recognize him too. I figured he'd be flattered someone recognized him when he's only been in the majors for a few months. And, like I said, I know he had time to kill!
And yes, it's obviously very sad that I'm about to turn 23 years old and I'm upset like a little kid when I got snubbed by an athlete I'm a big fan of.
