Thread: I just met Met 3B David Wright: great guy

  1. #1

    I just met Met 3B David Wright: great guy

    I was just at Hickey Freeman on Fifth Avenue getting my kid's bar-mitzvah suit fitted and David Wright was getting fitted for a tux. He was really nice when I said hi, shook hands with both my boys and chatted freely. Said he bought a place in the city, asked where we lived, which teams I liked (Mets and Jets baby!) and he was really looking forward to the season.

    Very refreshing to meet such a friendly, humble guy. You'd never know he made millions at age 23 and was of the best in the game at his position. He was genuinely nice to my kids, easy to talk to, not full of himself at all, and was happy to let me take a cell phone pic so my son could show his buds at school.

    I always liked him but even more so now. Wish all athletes could be like him. The kind of young man you'd be happy to have your daughter bring home.

    I met him too, definitely the same impression I got. He's a great guy, very outgoing and very humble.

    I have a T-Mobile Pebl phone, and I'm seriously dumb when it comes to this stuff. My kid's doing his homework and my wife threatend bodily harm if I- and this is a direct quote "interrupt him to send a picture to your Jet web sit because you're too dumb to do it yourself."

    The guys looking for a wife might note that is what to look forward to when he gets married.

    I'm pretty sure he was commenting on calling David Wright "D-Wright," in which case I'd have to agree that he deserves better than that haha.

    "interrupt him to send a picture to your Jet web sit because you're too dumb to do it yourself."

    That got me laughing, I've been married for about 6 months and can already see the shift towards this!
