I got to go to the reopening of the 40/40 Club in Manhattan last night. Jay-Z was there since it is his club (yawn, I see him like every day at Yankee Stadium) but while everyone was looking to peep him and Beyonce, I had my eyes peeled for C.C. Sabathia and A-Rod, who were rumored to come. The latter was a no-show but C.C. came around 11 p.m.
I was carrying beers back from the bar to the table where my friends were chilling and Erin said "Joanna, turn around." There was no missing C.C. Sabathia, even in a packed club, and Erin said I made a beeline for him, dragging Jeanne, who had a camera to make up for my dead cell phone, by the arm.
I asked him to take a picture, he obliged and Jeanne snapped it. The encounter was brief but there is photographic evidence...now I just need Jeanne to send me the pic., which I will post here as soon as I can!
I'm running away to London this weekend. I doubt I will run into a Yankee there, but I'll keep a lookout and my camera in hand.
