By now you all know about Mike Nickeas. What you may not know is that in September I sent him a letter telling him that I'm a big fan. Yup, I sent him fan-mail. It's now towards the end of October and I was starting to think I wouldn't get a response.
Well, my wait ended today. I found an envelope addressed to me and I wasn't really expecting anything in the mail. I start to think this might be the picture I sent him to sign, but it's in a bigger envelope so I'm wondering what else is there.
I open it.
Mike Nickeas signed his batting practice cap and sent it to me. I'm not kidding. It says, "Ellie - Thanks for being an AWESOME fan!" Awesome is actually underlined twice. And his autograph is on the hat, too.
He also autographed and sent back the picture.
I really cannot stop smiling right now. This is so cool. Thank you, Mike.
LET'S GO METS!
