This is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
Today's 'Friendly Encounter' is a very cheap one. Technically, I am not even sure it qualifies. It is a petty attempt to log in a 'Friendly Encounter'.
And I LOVE it!
Matt "Big Money" Parker just might be the leader in 'Friendly Encounters'. He doesn't have to stoop to this level to get another one. Yet, he does. That type of dedication must be rewarded.
Matt is always looking out for an opportunity to pose with a celeb. He has scored many good ones and some funny ones, too.
On this particular occasion, Matt could have shoved the kids aside and tried to get a closer picture with White Sox pitcher Addison Reed, but he took the classy route and allowed the youngsters to have their fun. Still, that did not stop Matt from having some fun of his own. His girlfriend Erin obliged him by taking the photo.
Everyone could take lessons from Matt. It isn't just by accident that he is featured so frequently in 'Friendly Encounters'.
