Friendly Encounters

This is another in a series of meetings of my friends and celebs.

Jason Voyles is a blogger bud. Treasure Never Buried usually centers around his young son Connor, with sports cards as a backdrop. JV served our country in Afghanistan. Now he manages a restaurant, adores his son and is the self-proclaimed "Greatest Husband in the History of the Universe". He recently started a new blog for baseball card traders, the HaveWant blog.
In June of 2008, the Voyles family attended their first big league game together. They saw their hometown Mississippi Braves battle the Tennessee Smokies. You can read the whole story at Take Me Out to the Ballgame-Part 2.
Connor had his first celebrity encounters and I have the pictures to show the moments. Without further adieu, I present young Connor and his 2 new friends, the Incredible Hulk and Spiderman.

This post made me feel right with the world. Great shot of a father and son. Good to see a kid with a glove and not a joystick. Great to see a father expose his son to the wonderful world of baseball card collecting. It's all good.

Thanks for the nice comments, Mike, and thanks for a great post, John. I truly appreciate the gesture. Connor was thrilled to see himself somewhere on the internet besides Treasure Never Buried. Awesome post!!
