Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring my friends meeting celebrities.
Today, our old Chicago Bandits buddy takes a break from chasing sports autographs to chase music autographs. For someone who has as many autographs as Cimags, it's all part of the fun in graphing.
Red (or R3D or RED) is a Christian rock band from Nashville, TN. It was formed in 2002 by brothers guitarist Anthony Armstrong and bassist Randy Armstrong, with lead vocalist Michael Barnes.
The band has won several awards and have been nominated for many more presented by the Gospel Music Association. Among other awards, they won Rock Recorded Song of the Year four times.
Cimags hasn't won any awards yet, but he's got an interesting YouTube channel. His Cimags channel has cool autograph stuff, including unboxing videos. He also has Polemon videos. You can check out his stuff on the Cimags YT Channel.
I haven't seen Cimags much since he moved to Minnesota. I'll probably see him less now that the National Pro Fastpitch Chicago Bandits have ceased operations. Hopefully, someday our paths will cross. Until then, I'll recall his spirit by featuring him here on occasion.
