Me and Gov. Mike
So I'm in Memphis right now and I was out with some co-workers eating BBQ tonight. We noticed that a bunch of news type people started walking in the restaurant. We asked what was going on and were told that Gov. Mike Huckabee would be coming. Sure enough, he soon walked in and started kissing babies and shaking hands. I had my cell phone camera out and before I knew it one of the people I was with had asked if I could take a picture with him. He pulled me right in and started giving me a hard time about my USC gear. We talked sports for a minute or so, which was absolutely surreal. I kept waiting for him to walk away be he just kept talking to me. I have to admit, it was one of the coolest experiences I have had in a long time. It was great to see a presidential candidate out on the street, trying to drum up some much needed votes before Super Tuesday. In the second picture he is covering up the USC logo which got a pretty good laugh from the crowd.
