The article (TNT, 5-24) on Steve Prefontaine coming to town brought me back. I went to Scott's Athletic Equipment in Lakewood that day. The line in the article that caught my attention referred to his "genuineness in relating to anybody."
When it was my turn at front of the line and he was signing my poster, I said, "Hey, you're a lefty like me!" He looked up and said, "Power to the lefties."
Still makes me smile. Still have the poster.
