We didn't met him that day... but he had to settle for a Pujols autograph with the help of a stadium staffers help. Nice gent.

Seeing some of the replies about how excited that woman was about meeting Favre......some people made like she was some kind of psycho, because she was shaking and that excited. I don’t blame the woman. I have found myself shaking a few times when I met my sports heroes.
I was like that when I met Ray Nitschke, Bart Starr, Favre and Aaron Rodgers.
No , I didn’t scream “I love you!” But I DID sing “it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood” to Rodgers, which got him to come over to me and sign my mini helmet!
Those few seconds with these guys made my day, and gave me great memories to hold onto.
Pro athletes can affect people positively AND negatively by their actions. You get to see both ways by just going to a practice to watch how they interact with us “little people”.
I have really enjoyed this thread and seeing some positive things.

Angels honor Skaggs with emotional no-hit masterpiece
https://www.espn.com/mlb...itter-night-honor-skaggs 

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Mike Trout shook his head.

"You can't," he said, pausing for a moment to gather himself. "You can't make this stuff up."

The Los Angeles Angels scored seven first-inning runs Friday night. They finished with 13. Tyler Skaggs' birthday is on the 13th day of the seventh month, which just so happens to be Saturday.

"I'm speechless," Trout said. "This is the best way to honor him."

The Angels honored Skaggs with an emotional ceremony before their first home game since his sudden death on July 1. They honored him by donning his No. 45 jersey. They honored him by inviting his mother, Debbie Hetman, onto the field for the ceremonial first pitch. And they honored him, improbably, with a combined no-hitter, delivered by Taylor Cole and Felix Pena in a 13-0 trouncing of the Seattle Mariners at Angel Stadium.

The one with the little boy excited as heck he got a ball and then gave it to the other boy who was devastated he didn't get one ... yeah ... that right there.

I remember Jarod. He was a really big man. It’s a shame he died young.

Not an athlete... but tied to sports... Simple act and a few bucks probably meant the world to the kid.
