The Ghost Of Hank Greenberg

Comments (0) 12:00 AM posted by admin |

So I’m about to get in my car this morning and head off to work when someone walks up to me in the driveway and says, “Are you Brian Robb.” 

I told him, “Yes I am.” To which he added, “Are you the Brian Robb running for Ypsilanti City Council?”

“Yeah, that’s me,” I said. “Do you need me to fix a parking ticket or something?”

“No, No,” he said. “I want you to have these.” And then he proceeded to hand me an envelope and walk back down the block.

When I opened the envelope, I noticed not one, but two tickets to Game 1 of the World Series tomorrow night at Comerica Park.

I told him, “I can’t accept these. This is probably illegal or something. At the very least, I’ll have to declare these as a campaign contribution.”

“You can’t declare them if you don’t know my name,” he shouted as he started to sprint around the corner.

So there you have it. I’m going to Game 1 of the World Series tomorrow night.

This Council gig is going to be sweet.
