Cool story about Gomez. I went to Weinstein & Gavino's one evening after the 09-10 playoff run and the whole team was there eating dinner. I got up and spoke to quite a few players, everyone gave the you know "thanks" and cliched answers you would give to fans, but Gomez actually was like "hey man, thanks for that, sucks that we lost, would you like to have a beer or something?" I said "no", but he insisted and said "yeah, take one." He was just genuinely a nice guy. I didn't accept the beer and sat down because I didn't want to disturb while they were all together. When i sat back down I couldn't help but keep watching them as I ate, but every singe time a fan went over to speak to them, Gomez always gave them the time of day, he would chat it up, while all the other players would acknowledge and then brush away.

Anyway, thought I'd share.
