Chicago, IL-- I did really well today, got a ton of cards signed and a ton of Cubs I have not gotten before. They were truly happy to be in the playoffs, great atmosphere and the guys were really happy! The ESPN Broadcasters blew me off but I don't care really I did not want to interrupt John Kruk's smoking/doughnut break. Here's what I got:

Trevor Cahill: Trevor is a funny looking dude, by that I mean he is like a 6'6" 240 version of the Pillsbury Dough Boy. At least he is getting the job done. Thanks Trevor. He signed one for me in the parking lot, a buddy of mine who didn't have anything got me one done and after the game I saw Trevor talking to his dad, he didn't want to sign but his dad told him too. Thanks Trevor!
Tommy Hunter: Tommy got dropped off by a cab in the parking lot and came out and signed for everyone. Really chill guy! He has an excellent autograph as well. First time getting him.
Henry Blanco: Henry signed 2/2 for me after the game he just walked out into the street and only I got him, Thanks Henry!
Eric Hinske: Eric signed 1/1 for me after the game he has slimmed way down, looks like a completely different person.

Franklin Font: Franklin walked down the street with Yoervis Medina, I didn't have anything for Yoervis so I called Font over and he did one for me.
Carl Edwards Jr.: God does CJ hate cards he was signing for everyone down the line but he kept skipping my card I was lucky he signed it, I was the only one to get him on a card. Thanks CJ!
Kyle Hendricks: Kyle is probably the nicest person on earth, always smiling, just a great overall person. Thanks for a great season Kyle!
Jason Motte: Jason signed one for me, he sure does sign now. He was impossible earlier in the year. Thanks Jason!
Matt Szczur: Matt knocked out one leaving the parking lot, he's an amazing guy with a great story. Could have gone to the NFL but he donated bone marrow to a sick child and it ended his football career. I like Matt Szczur!
Kyle Schwarber: Kyle... I mean the Babe... knocked out one for my set, he's a good guy just a beast he can't field but it doesn't matter he just homers every day. One of my favorites!
Clayton Richard: Clayton came walking down the street the opposite direction and I spotted him, he did 1/3. This dude is such a legend, gonna be in Cooperstown one day. Thanks Clayton.
Fernadno Rodney: Fernando signed for about 20 minutes down the line he was skipping tons of people and I had some help but I got him for the first time. Thanks Nando!
Kris Bryant: My idol. Not much more to be said. He comes out of the parking lot with a huge smile on his face and signed for everyone that asked him, it was a mob scene but he got everyone. The fame has definitely not gone to his head he truly is a special person who I hope is in Chicago for a very long time, I can't say enough good things about this guy! GO KB!

Anthony Rizzo: So after the game almost everyone was being escorted by security, including Rizzo and I was just standing there, I did not think Anthony would even look over, it's most likely my last game, so I called Anthony's name and he looked over, the security said "no we are going straight through" Rizzo stopped walking he said "Nah fam, hold my coat" He handed his coat to the security worker and walked over to me, signed my card, then left. I didn't understand it, but thanks Anthony, my last graph of the 2015 regular season.
