Fan Fest DAY 2 Wrapup:
A torrential downpour is upon the stadium at 9 a.m., but a line waiting to get in snakes around the Big A.
No umbrellas for these two (Your Rev HF and Missus HF), so a detour from FanFest is needed (actually, demanded by a soaking Missus HF).
AM.PM on Katella/State College: No umbrella
Chevron three blocks up: No umbrella.
Small grocery store “The Satellite”: umbrellas, $2.99 each.
I buy 2
9:45: Rain is lighter, autograph lines surge. Kids rides not running
Line for photographs is shorter. We get a few of these over the course of two hours. I won’t say which players, but as with many, many guys in their mid-late 20s on a Sunday morning, the well-scrubbed appearance barely masks the downtrodden hungover remnants of a Saturday night out with the co-workers..
Highlight of Day 2 (besides Missus Halofan sitting on Alfredo Griffin’s lap for a photo) is acquiring a Vladimir Guerrero street banner. Time to redecorate around here.
