Mr. #55 a.k.a. Brandon McArthy
Decided to stroll into my work Thurs. evening
I was dumbfounded when I saw him
not because of aww-struck, just because it threw me off guard
shook his hand and noticed the HUGE World Series Ring that he sports....
little later in the evening my girlfriend was chatting with him and he offered to let me wear the WORLD SERIES RING.....
The thing was huge......IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and I've got pictures....not great ones but they are great in my mind
I GOT TO WEAR THE WORLD SERIES RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

p.s. I think couple of them are coming in on Saturday night

Funny because I had similar experiences:

I saw McCarthy with Anderson out on the town a week ago Thursday.

I was not as awestruck by the ring because a couple weeks ago I was out at a dive bar in the downtown area and a Sox marketing employee let me wear her ring. I got pictures and so did 2 of my friends, one Sox fan and one Yankees fan.

And FWIW the Yanks fan was totally cool about it, just as awestruck to put on the bling as any of us.

Aren't you the guy who works at the "Sox friendly" bar on Diversey? That's walking distance from me. You say they're coming in Saturday night?

I can not guarantee anything......but McArthy was saying that couple of them are going out and might come by....

I asked him if he wanted me to save him some tables but he said he would be getting there to late so he didn't want to inconvenience anyone.....


so who knows

I just find it funny that a ring fit for McCarthy would fit on anyone not 5 years old.... :D:
