...and even free online bankin'

Props to Brad Wilkerson for coming out to the Sprint Store on Richmond Highway in Alexandria last night to sign some autographs. It wasn't a huge turn-out, but I don't think they did much publicity for the event.

Brad was very gracious, signing multiples for a lot of people, even the obvious collectors. He really lit up for the little kids, especially the ones dressed in Nats stuff. I asked him how the forearm was feeling, and he said it was much better. I shook his hand and thanked him, hopefully dispelling the possibility that I was a stereotypical twenty-something male who just wanted an autograph to sell.

I really hope more events like these keep popping up. It's a great way to connect younger fans with their new team.
