Hunter Pence Approaches Us

When we were in Houston, we made an attempt to get a quick interview with Hunter Pence of the Astros for Global Traveler magazine. Pence had to take some swings in the cage and politely declined.

We thought that was the end of the story, but it wasn't.

We continued to hang on the field talking to some other players. All of a sudden, Pence approached us and asked me if I was ready. He surprised us so much that my usually unflappable videographer Matt Parker (aka Big Money) missed the very start of the interview.
We couldn't believe how cool that was for Pence (an All-Star) to find us and ask us if we still wanted to talk to him. I was tempted to joke "Window closed, Pence", ala my friends Chachi and Jim, but seriously I was too floored to attempt the humor. I just fumbled to regain my composure.
This guy is pure class.
