“Oh, hey there, Star Tribune photographer. What are you doing with that camera? Trying to catch me in a candid moment are you? A young star in Spring Training, soaking in the experience, eyes wide with wonder, just happy to play the game? Is THAT what you were looking for?
Not so fast, Star Tribune photographer. I’m too photogenic for candid shots. You get the suave raised eyebrow and a knowing glance. I look serious, but not too intimidating. I’m here to work. I’m not a mean guy, but I am a professional. That’s what this look conveys. That and my devilish good looks know no off season.
I’ll sign this for you if you want.”
