Went to the game tonight and sat up in section 527, about 3 rows from the top. Around the 4th inning, a guy in a suit comes walking down my aisle and hops over the seats to keep going behind me. I thought it was Brooks, but wasn't 100% sure.

When he was about 10-ft away, I said "Hey Brooks". He turned around, really surprised that someone knew who he was. He came over and shook my hand. I told him I recognized him from when he was in the Bullpen Bar a few months ago. I asked him how it was going. Let me paraphrase what he said. I can't remember the exact quote, but it was something like "I'm doing crappy, this team is playing like garbage."

Keep in mind, this was when the Sox were down huge 8-0.

Anyway, I thought it was cool that he was circling the upper deck for some reason. He's a cool guy.

Well, he's got the first principle of Marketing down... "Know Your Product."

Hey, I was in that section too. I was in row 8 though.

Damn, I could have seen the genius of marketing.

Damn, I was up there in the exact same section as you guys, and I saw the guy with the suit. I didn't realize it was Brooks until somebody made a comment after he had walked away. Would've been nice to meet him.
