Repped High Quality Post

Just got back home from a trip down to L.A. to meet Blake at the auto show. My kids badly wanted to go so we headed out around noon from Bakersfield. We didn't make it down there into the line until 3pm thanks to a car issue (my wife's 2012 Kia Optima apparently has a faulty battery). Had to call my father in law because no one at the gas station would help with tools or even a jump start. People suck!

So yeah... In line at 3pm and the line was already long. By 5:30 I had given up hope that we would make it to Blake before he was scheduled to leave (at 6:30). My kids were pretty much in tears because they started to understand it too... way too many people in front of us and not enough time. Well, Blake stayed. He kept signing and eventually we made it to him. My daughter gave him her picture she drew for him and he was all smiles. He looked at it, thanked her, and set it on the table next to him. My son got the picture I took of Blake at tip-off of his first ever Clippers game (summer league in Vegas) signed, Blake thought it was great we hadthat photo. It was finally my turn and Blake llooked a little perplexed when I took out some cardboard taped up with blue painters tape. I opened it up and took out a Clippers ticket from a few years back. It took him a few seconds and then he realized which game it was from. It was the only game my wife and I attended that year, and it was vs the Knicks. The Mosgov dunk game. He scored 44 points that night I believe.

We passed by the table again later on and he was still signing and smiling and interacting with everyone that had waited hours in line. I'm not sure how late he stayed, but it was well past the scheduled time. My kids were thrilled, and I am thankful that Blake is such an awesome guy to do that for all that came.

^ Nice! Lucky you and your kids got to meet him! I also kept my ticket from that night, I'll never forget that game, we lost but it felt like a W. Blake was all over SportsCenter after that game and I loved seeing our Clippers finally getting love.

Glad to hear he stayed longer for his fans, Blake is not only a great basketball player but a great guy.

That's so wonderful you and your kids got to meet Blake, 1clipperfan. Sounds to me like Blake is an upstanding guy, making sure all his fans who stood in line got to meet him. Great guy to represent the Clippers.
