I've always been a fan of Roy and have been pulling for him to recover from multiple knee surgeries. It was nice to see him back in an NBA uniform this season with the Timberwolves, although it doesn't look like he'll ever regain his old form. Hopefully, he'll be able to bounce back after his most recent setback and play at least a few more seasons for his fans.
What do Rickey Henderson, Gene Tenace, Rollie Fingers, and Kevin Kouzmanoff all have in common? They all spent a part of their career with my two favorite teams: the Oakland A's and the San Diego Padres.
He's also is the first person in MLB history to hit a grand slam on the first pitch of his first career at-bat. Gotta love Wikipedia and the information they provide us sports fans.
Anyways... if you're a fan of in-person autographs... or just autographs in general, then I encourage you to head over to his blog. He has some pretty cool stories about his personal experiences obtaining autographs from athletes in the Southern California area.
Thanks Matt for the great contest! Happy Friday and sayonara!
