B-iiiiiiiG Papi! The day I waited in line to meet the Red Sox great.
Last Friday, I had the thrill of my life meeting my favorite Red Sox DH-er at the Harvard Coop for a book signing of his memoir: “Papi: My Story“. I was like #10 in line, and when he stepped off the elevator, it was pure pandemonium – people crowding to get their photo or video to share on social media. And just like that, completely unaware of his own popularity, he took a seat at the table and the book signing began.
I’m looking forward to adding his book to my summer reading pile. When I finally got the chance to walk up to him and hand him my book, all I could say repeatedly was: “Thank you, Big Papi.” He responded, “You’re welcome.” Sigh.
