Cobi Jones at Buffalo Wild Wings
I had heard that former Galaxy star, and one of my favorite players, Cobi Jones, would be at a Buffalo Wild Wings not too far from my house. I was excited for the event, because I figured I could have a nice dinner, meet Cobi, and watch the game. This was not the case, I got to the event about 30 minutes before the start of the game and the manager was kicking people out of the lobby saying, they were at capacity. I hung around for a few moments, not really sure what to do, as I was mildly disobeying the manager of the restaurant, Cobi Jones walked right by me, with nobody recognizing him. I thought that it was pretty strange that no one recognized him because 80% of the people there, were there for the Galaxy event. I followed Cobi into the restaurant, right by the manager. Cobi went the opposite direction of the viewing party, and when he figured out he was in the wrong place, I politely asked him if he would sign. He was incredibly nice, and signed my two bobble heads plus a card. I grabbed my items and got out of the restaurant, I am sure Cobi signed for everyone there eventually, but it probably took him a while to shuffle through the crowds, this event was a zoo, and I didn't think it would be. Thankfully, I think I recognized him first, and got my autographs out of the way. I got what I came for and I decided to find a less crowded restaurant to eat at. It all happened so quickly and I didn't have a chance to snap any pictures of Cobi.
