  1. Me and my wife and friends were at the sox game sitting in the bar bullpen, when this lady sat next to us, and we didn’t have a clue who she was until she mentioned that her husband play for the Detroit Tigers, well she was obviously wearing Detroit Tigers shirt! When I said to to my wife and friends, “hey we have Detroit fan here!!” Then she smiled and told us that her husband play for Detroit , at first I was skeptical! But when she’s started talking about him! Is when we realized, that yea she is his wife, she was very friendly and very nice to us, we enjoyed talking to her and she enjoyed our company. Something you don’t see if you meet or try to talk to a celebrity or ball players wife!. But she was just like one of us! Very friendly and very nice, it was nice to have met her, that’s what I call a very classy lady indeed I wish her and her husband the best. And we’re glad to have met her
