So I'm back from Fanfest and the amazing tailgate afterward.
All the photos, if you don't feel like clicking through, are right here.
Fanfest was very well-attended and the ticket line was crazy. I was pretty shocked, considering how many recognizable faces were traded in the offseason.
Scott Hatteberg and David Justice were key attractions at the start.
Jonny Gomes' hair won Fanfest
Here's the setup they had with Fanfest in the Arena... I liked it. Optimal setting for Q&A.
No, Vida Blue was not autographing some trail mix.
Joe Rudi and Gene Tenace
David Justice demonstrating his 1B technique with the Braves. He had done it once in AAA before, when Atlanta asked him to do so. He talked about how scary it was to play 1B with Darryl Strawberry at bat.
Q from Chris Townsend: How often do you think about the perfect game?
A from Dallas Braden: Well, I do like to taste myself. I am my favorite flavor...
Please use this Fanpost to share your own Fanfest photos! Hope you all had fun. Any stories?
