Brush With Greatness

Very nice tale from Vancouver’s John Scukanec about spending the day with Ken Griffey Jr.

“I’m almost 38 years old. I’m a father of 2 boys and well past the stage where anyone should have a sports hero. However when I walked out onto the golf course and saw him, shook his hand and introduced myself, I didn’t feel 38. ‘Hello, I’m Ken’ he said. I felt like I was 12 years old.”

Thanks to John’s wife, Heather, for alerting me to this. It’s a nice read.
