I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mike Piazza at a book signing last night in Pasadena. Piazza was appearing and putting pen to paper on copies of his just-released autobiography, Long Shot. I purchased one copy and headed out to meet my childhood hero.I met up with Arno from I'm Ballsy and also met Martin from True To The Blue for the first time. Only copies of the book were in play for Piazza's John Hancock and no pictures were allowed in order to keep the line moving. Well, they said no pictures but Mike was posing for quick photos. An employee took my camera and snapped a photo which was blurry as could be.Oh well, I'll meet Piazza again some day in the future and get a nice photo with him. Though I would have loved to get a good photo and shake the man's hand, I was just happy he was on the West Coast and signing to begin with. I thanked him for signing and told him I appreciated his time, and Mike said "take it easy man." Or something along those...
