Congrats to Cole Hammels for working things out with the Cubs although I know he'd have had a few other teams happy to have him too!
Last February, I was in Nashville for the Country Radio Seminar and a buddy and I had hopped on a large golf cart. An employee of the Ryman Auditorium offered us to lift from the front of our hotel to travel the 5 blocks to the Home of the Opry with rain suddenly coming down. As we rode up the street, I noticed a couple walking quickly in the rain in the same direction we were headed and I screamed out to them, "Want a ride?" They welcomed the cover and jumped into the two extra seats on our cart. I didn't immediatley recognize the guy who took the seat next to me, thinking he was someone in country radio so I introduced myself and he told me "I'm Cole Hamels"!! I almost fell off the cart myself lol. Maybe it was the fact that he had shaved and we we're in Nashville. Turns out his wife IS in the music business. Had to get a pic in front of the Ryman to prove it. Cool moment right?
