    It was good, I hit my goal of 300 sigs for the trip (got 343, actually, not even including the ones I bought) and Arron and I combined for over 750. Fort Wayne was great, it rained in Cedar Rapids but I still got some done, and Des Moines was decent aside from nearly trading punches with some loudmouth jackwagon before the game even started.

    For the visually-minded, I have this. Fair warning, it's over an hour...

    Wow, looks like an awesome time! You have to share more about the loud mouth in Des Moines!

    Taken from my blog, and slightly censored...

    From there, it was a two-hour drive to Des Moines, and we arrived only 15 minutes after gates opened. Las Vegas was finishing up batting practice, but we weren't able to get anyone just yet. Having zero luck early on the Iowa side, we went over to try the Vegas side and at least got Patrick Kivlehan on 4/4 and Bryce Brentz on 3/3-- putting me past my stated goal of 300 for the trip.

    And this is when my trouble began.

    Arron and I are down doing our thing, minding our own business, chatting with a couple other 'graphers when over comes this guy in an Iowa Hawkeyes shirt, 51s hat, and beard and glasses that make him look like some hipster candy***.

    "SO, WHICH OF YOU ARE VEGAS FANS? METS FANS? IF YOU'RE NOT THEN YOU NEED TO GET THE F*** OUT OF HERE RIGHT NOW."

    Clearly I don't take well to that, so I just look and scoff at his arrogant d-baggery. So he doubles down...

    "YOU A METS FAN? I DON'T SEE IT ON YOUR HAT. YOU'RE SOME BANDWAGON CUBS FAN AREN'T YOU?"

    Oh. Hell. No. For the record, I was wearing my Cedar Rapids Kernels hat. I don't bandwagon anything, much less the Cubs. So I told him to go sit back down. Repeatedly.

    "SO, WHAT, YOU'RE HERE TO GET THESE AND SELL THEM, AREN'T YOU?"

    I told him yeah, exactly, I'm that desperate for the dollar that I would get. Sarcasm clearly doesn't go over well with him. Meanwhile Jeremy Accardo came over and signed 2/2, followed by Dominic Smith on 1/2. So the guy goes and sits back down for a bit, telling everyone around that I'm a dealer. On my way back out of the section, I called him out for the fact that it's amazing that this "bandwagon Cubs fan" knew all of his team's players better than he did.

    By the way, this dude was getting a computer-printed team logo sheet signed... and didn't even fit it onto a single page.

    So he strikes back at me-- of course-- this time loudly dropping F-Bombs that are echoing throughout a couple of sections, with a kid right next to him. When I pointed that out he expressed the fact that he "didn't give a f***" who was around. Meanwhile one of the decent 'graphers notified security, while Arron told them what was going on. So security... did absolutely nothing except check his ticket and tell him to tone it back. I was hoping he'd be escorted out and I probably would try to needle him into punching me on the way by. No dice.

    Even two Mets fans at the top of the section were on my side in the whole thing, seeing it all go down from a distance. Most Mets fans I know are decent people. No idea why this guy was looking for a fight or why he went after me for it, but as the former penalty minute leader of a few floorball leagues, I think most people I know are well aware I don't back down from an altercation if I'm in the right. And every witness agreed that I was.

    More than anything I felt sorry for his wife or girlfriend, or whoever his female companion was.

    Postgame went better. One of the 'graphers who saw it all go down said "Geez, you're really getting it tonight, aren't you?" He said he had never seen that guy before, so he wasn't remotely representative of the Des Moines 'graphers.

    So, despite the near-throwdown with some total 'hole, it was good. Day 12 will consist of hopefully more of the same, but with different names and hopefully no throwing of hands.
