As I was wandering aimlessly through the rooms of Chiller, I stumbled across Thomas Ian Nicholas. The name didn’t ring a bell and I’m not a huge American Pie fan so I was slowly moving on. Then I saw a photo of Rowengartner . I stopped and picked up the photo. I had to get it signed.
Yes, I do think Rookie of a Year is a great movie. I watch it a few times every year. And yes, I do love Little Big League too.
I told him I would not beat him down with how much I like the movie. He said it wasn’t any problem. He was not embarrassed about it. I mentioned how I like the plate discussion of the ‘had-attude’ and he added to the signature. It’s not a perfect quote but still nice.
As I was showing this to the wife, she mentioned, I should have gotten a photo of him at the plate and praying: ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod. That would have been good too. Next time.
