Wow, our trip to Arizona got off to a great start last night! Since we are staying in Scottsdale and heard that Braun was going to be at the Scottsdale Mall promoting his t-shirt line, my wife and I thought we'd go check it out.
We were expecting a big crowd and only hoping to get a photo from afar and possibly wait in line for an autograph. We went inside Nordstroms and saw a table with Braun's t-shirts but no sign of any players. Thinking we probably missed them (especially since there were very few people around), we were a bit disappointed. Not long after, in comes Braun, Hardy, Hall, Derek Lee, Grady Sizemore, and Andre Ethier, all wearing the Remetee t-shirts! We were first in line, and they were super nice! We told them how we were huge Brewer fans and wished them good luck this year. Braun signed a baseball and a baseball card we had brought, and my wife had her picture taken in between Braun and Hardy. It was great, because there were so few people there and the players were so friendly.
Just wanted to share our experience. We are headed to the Brewers-Giants game in Scottsdale today.
