This sort of reminds of a time back in the early 90's when a friend of my parents asked me if I liked the Sox Shortstop, Ozzie Guillen. She told me that a friend of hers saw Ozzie on the street one day and a kid came up to Ozzie and asked for an autograph on his baseball. Ozzie took the kid's ball, signed it and then tossed it on the street under a bus and laughed at the kid.
Too bad we did not have the Internet and TMZ back then. Very credible story.
