I am a sad panda.
Antonio Bass is in the building right now from Alro meeting with Purchasing. I run Shipping and Receiving. Therefore, the chances of me getting to meet him and shake his hand = .001%. :(
Doesn't John Navarre also work for Alro? Maybe he will be making a visit in the near future.
no word on whether he'll be camping though
Does he have any free samples/parts he wants to provide to your company? You could make a stink and say all material coming into the facility has to be routed through Receiving. Then you could come off as a good guy by waiving all the shipping paperwork in exchange for a handshake from Antonio. Problem solved!
We already buy from Alro. He's just in to make sure our Inside Sales guy is keeping us happy.
to the football players
He went to my HS!
or hearty supper(s)?

Always been a big fan of Alro, growing up in Jackson.
What's Arlo? This Texas boy is unfamiliar with this of which you speak.
Hopefully the internet will make it's way to Texas soon enough...
It's not the internet that's an issue... it's my inability to read. I was searching Arlo (as you see in my previous post) which didn't produce the obvious results.
The owner is a big booster who coughed up quite a bit of money for the indoor practice facility which is named after him I believe.
Named for Al Glick (booster/indoor practice facility namesake) AND his brother Bob (a/k/a Robert.) But Bob may have retired and moved South. Yup, I'm another Jacksonian, though I went to Parkside, the baby-boomer second public high school that turned into a middle school when the population went back down. (Antonio went to Jackson High, right?)
Yeah, it was nice following a promising athlete from Jackson from afar (Tony Dungy went to Parkside, but that was admittedly a while ago), and his strange injury was so so sad, but it's great to have heard (via this blog, of course) that he's still a great kid-- I mean, young man. If he passes by again, wish him well.
Can you ask him how his comeback is going? I've heard he's practicing and could return to the field any day!
(Sorry, old bit, I know, but I couldn't resist!)
Also donated a bunch of steel for the stadium....
I hope he is doing well.
