Cal Ripken at the Mall
Some blogs have made their mark with pictures of famous professional athlete doing borderline inappropriate things with comely young ladies in social settings. This blog is in the process of trying to make its mark with pictures of famous professional athletes awkwardly posed with excited young men at large retail outlets. As always, e-mail me your best candid shots with D.C. sports icons, please, with any necessary explanation included.
Although I have to say, it's gonna be hard for you to beat this pair of photos from longtime Bog reader Aaron Goldstein. In fact, it would be hard for me to love a photo more than I love the artwork pictured above, which will soon be my wallpaper. Aaron explains:
I met Cal Ripken Jr. walking through a mall in Towson a few months back and had a camera on me. Important lesson I learned that day: If you take a picture with Cal Ripken Jr., use a flash or no one will believe you.
The [below photo] is when I was in a Cleveland mall, about seven years ago when the Grizzlies were still in Vancouver and they were in town to play the Cavs and my friend David said, " There's Mike Bibby," so we took pictures and Michael Dickerson was with him. Bibby was actually wearing NJ Nets shorts.
