A friend of mine told me last night about an encounter his wife had a couple of weeks ago while flying back to San Diego from Chicago.
Wife (reading sports page of newspaper): I can't believe the Padres are 19 games out of first place!
Man seated next to her: Easy. Just settle down.
Wife: I'm a fan. But I can't believe that they're this bad.
Man (extending hand): Hi. I'm Phil Nevin.
No, my friend didn't get an autograph.
