Baseball Hall of Famer George Brett celebrates his birthday today. It was always funny to run into him because you never knew if he was going to be in a signing mood when you’d see him. However, I can think of many occasions where he did sign and at the very moment he got over it (which was usually after signing for about 3 people or less), he’d take the pen he was using, drop it on the ground and keep moving. That man has ruined more Sharpies for me than I can count! Luckily, I am not bitter. Happy birthday George!
