Spent the day hanging at Fenway with my pals @marissamcclain, @toddradom, and my dad! I signed the inside of the Green Monster and put up Chance Adams’ number 43 to start his first major league game. What a day! A win would’ve sealed it, but you can’t have everything. There’s still time this season. Thank you Marissa for the amazing tour and the great time!!! Just waiting for my invitation to draw on Yankee Stadium now...come onnnnn!!!

It’s real life after all! Got my first advanced copies of Brand By Hand and it is even better than I could’ve ever dreamed.
