    I saw Maz and Gator in DC

    So on Saturday night I was walking to dinner in Georgetown and headed down M street past the Ritz-Carlton. As a stopped on the corner by the hotel's restaurant to pick up my phone, I looked into the window and saw none other than the Yankee's bench coach and pitching coach sitting down for a meal.

    I stood there for a few seconds looking in to confirm that I was truly only a pane of glass away from half the coaching staff but then Maz shot me a rather annoyed look. He was in the middle of what looked like a heated exchange with Gator and probably didn't appreciate some guy staring at him.

    I took the hint and kept on walking. While this is happening, the person who called me only heard a 'Hold on' and 20 seconds of silence.
    After I had gotten a block away, I picked up the phone and apologized for leaving him hanging.
    He asked "What was that?"
    I responded "Lee Mazzilli and Ron Guidry"
    Not being a sports fan, he responds with "Oh...friends from the office?"

    How many games until Proctor's arm falls off.

    Mazz said 15, but Guidry put it at 25 more. They got pretty animated.

    Sorry you didn't have a more positive experience, but it's still cool that you got to see them. Not everyone can say that Maz shot them an annoyed look.

    He looked really irritated and I don't think it was solely because he was being gawked at.

    Then again, blowing a 7 run lead will do that to you.

    It must have been a product of the situation. I have met Maz a couple of times and he has always been very nice and pleasant.

    Oh yeah, definitely. If he and Gator were having an argument, he was probably not in the mood to be fan friendly.

    That cracked me up ... I saw in the Washington Post earlier in the week that a few of the guys were spotted out at dinner ... Jeter, Giambi, Posada, I think there was one more ... and then ARod was spotted at a different restaurant. I'll have to see if I can find it now, just for the heck of it.

    Nice story.

    The "Oh...friends from the office?" thing made me laugh.
