Hey, so Citizen Ryan went to Fan Appreciation Day at Minute Maid Park, and sent along some photos.
As you would expect, Pence ate the thing up. He really is the kid living the dream. The Manzella/Kepp story is just too funny though, mainly because I did NOT see it coming:
My cousin (to me as players are coming by): I bet these guys get real tired of hearing "You had a good year!" when they really didn't.
Me (in response): OK. So we'll only tell a few players that, since only a few really had good years. Like Kepp and Myers.
So as Kepp comes by... (followed by Manzella right behind him)
Me (to Kepp): You had a good year. Really. I'm only saying this to a couple of players and you're one of them.
Manzella: You can't believe that guy. He told me that a few minutes ago.
Now that's comedy. On to some photos.
Remember, if you have pictures of Astros players, send them along. If you print off a Proof of Citizenship, take a picture holding it and send it in, we'll post it.
