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.
Thanks for sharing that, as time goes by people realise how a good person he was(wonder if he learned french? lol).

But I won't miss the circus his mere presence generated.
