Caps’ Matt Bradley at ESPN Zone

8 01 2009

Yesterday I got my first brush of fame for the year 2009. The ESPN Zone in Washington, D.C. was hosting a nifty Q&A Session with the Caps’ Matt Bradley. I’ve been to a past “meet and greet” thing like this in the past for Brooks Laich which was pretty amazing, so I was expecting an equally fun evening. 

After the Q&A with the audience asking Matt some questions, they opened it up to autographs and picture taking with the star himself. (I had wanted to ask Matt a question, but didn’t get to during the  more formal session, since I was sitting in an awkward place off to the side. Yes, I know, not prime paparazzi placement, but I had to work with what I was given).

Anyways, when it was my turn to approach Matt Bradley, I did ask him my question. “Last season, I read that you were introducing recycling into the locker room. I was wondering how that’s been going.” 

Matt  Bradley told me that it’s been a successful campaign. He told me that he’s trying to aim more to re-use than to recycle, since he pointed out that re-using is better anyways. He said that for example, the Caps have been using reusable water bottles and what also seemed to be that they are re-using/conserving their water in the bathrooms. Cool! I asked him if he’s like, “Mr. Recycle” now because of his efforts. He laughed and said that a few of the guys tease him about it. But I think that’s cute. And really great. Good job, Matt Bradley!

On a separate note, while waiting in line with a friend to get an autograph/picture, I took some candid photos of the man himself. For all those gossip journals out there: Matt Bradley doesn’t wear socks with his shoes! I’ve got the photos to prove it. Enjoy! And of course, let’s go CAPS!!!!
