I’m bound to run into him at some point.
Otherwise, players will generally contact their agent who will call the other player's agent to get the info.
about 10 yrs ago, an AP sports reporter accidentally put his list of phone numbers up on the wire, where anyone could download it and print it. i had a copy of it. it was wild. i had kareem abdul jabbar's home phone number, bud selig's home phone, a bunch of others that i can't recall. hundreds of names. i don't remember the fallout, but i'm sure some of them had to change their numbers.
If you were starting a new job, and someone from your new office left you a voice mail welcoming you aboard, would you automatically call them back immediately? Or would you maybe just think, "Hey, that was a nice thing Joba did." Or maybe you'd think, "Hey I should call him back one of these days" but then just forget to do so. Or "When I start work, I'll have to thank him for his call."
If I moved to a company where they employed a guy who had once thrown a stapler at me and he made the attempt to say no hard feelings and welcome to the new job I'd probably give him a call back.
Asked if he was surprised Youkilis didn’t respond, Chamberlain said, “No, not really. I’m bound to run into him at some point. Sooner rather than later. We’ll see what happens. We’re grown men
By 2009, [Derek Jeter's] routine in Red Sox games involved acknowledging Francona before his first at-bat of each game. Approaching home plate, Jeter would look over into the Boston dugout and gesture toward the Sox manager with his hand or bat. If Francona was momentarily distracted, Jeter would step back and wait for a response before proceeding with his work.
"A couple of times somebody in our dugout would have to nudge me and say, 'Hey, look over at him! He's waiting for you to wave back,'' said Francona.
... Once Jeter established the ritual, coaches in the Red Sox dugout noticed A-Rod started to mime the gesture. Francona never noticed. He wouldn't intentionally ignore Rodriguez, but he had too much to do and there were usually runners on base by the time A-Rod came to the plate.
I am still waiting for Scarlett Johansson to return my call.
Kate Upton got right back to me though. Sweet girl.
The Clemens/Jeter situation is the model for this, isn't it? Clemens joined the Yankees and Jeter walked up to the plate in spring training loaded up with armor and they all had a corny laugh over it as the media and all the fans who care about this nonsense lapped it up.
merely Joba Chamberlain playing Glenn Close in "Fatal Attraction" - 'I will not be ignored!"
Never seen the movie. I understand a rabbit got boiled, or something like that.
If so, Joba would of course eat it ASAP.
