Sabes on a Plane!

I haven't posted here inna while but thought yall would appreciate this story.

So this past Friday I was at an SFO bar waiting for my flight to San Diego and started chatting it up with a really nice dude, Ben, that had just gotten back from Iraq. 

He was telling me about his flight from SD up to the Bay and how he got moved to first class because he was late for his plane.  Then he starts telling me about this older guy he sat next to in first class who said he was the General Manager of the Giants. 

Of course after he said this I was like "You sat next to Brian Fking Sabean??!!!"  Ben had never heard of him and had no idea he was such a big deal, but apparently our Sabes was on his way back from Alabama scouting for the upcoming draft.  I tried to see if he had hinted to Ben on who he was looking at for the draft but apparently Sabes didn't want to talk to much about the GIants.

So anyway, Sabes and Ben are drinkin' up a storm and sharing stories.  According to Ben, Sabes said a couple times "Fuck work! Lets drink!  Its free fuck it!" (Sabean drinks cranberry and vodkas)

At the end of the flight Sabean offers Ben $200 and a bracelet blessed by the pope.  Ben refused but Sabes told him to "Fuckin take it!"  Ben indeed had two Benjamins and a bracelet at the bar.

It must have been nice for Sabean to talk to some young kid who had no idea who he was or what he did.  But damn, $200 for good conversation, Sabes must be really lonely.

Comment starter:  If you sat next to Brian Sabean on a plane, what would be the first thing you said to him?

My Answer: Free Nate!
