Meeting Murph (Photo Bomb By My Dad)

Mike Murphy was a long-time radio personality on the Score in Chicago.  He was also a long-time Cubs fan (going back to the original "bleacher bums").
At a White Sox game last year, I thought I recognized his voice from the group sitting behind us.  I checked with Matt, but we still were not sure.  I had to ask the man himself.
Sure enough, it was Murph.  This was a first for me.  I rarely recognize celebrities even when I am looking at them.  Recognizing one by voice was a new one for me.  Of course, I was definitely familiar with Murph's voice from listening to him for so many years.
We talked or a bit, but I did not want to intrude on his time with his friends.  Later in the game, they got up to walk around the park.  I happened to be at the concession stand as they walked by.  I took that opportunity to get a picture with Murph.  Later, when I looked at my camera, I noticed my dad had unintentionally photo-bombed me!  (I think that was a first for my dad.
