When I was seven years old I went to a baseball game with my family.  I was living in Fremont, Ca and this was not an uncommon occurrence.  I ran to the front of the stands as batting practice was ending with my baseball cards in hand.  I was in luck.  This day, Mark McGwire was signing autographs.  I was small and cute, so I was able to wriggle my way to the front of the crowd.  "Mr. McGwire!  Mr. McGwire!"  I yelled in opposition to all those around me who were yelling out "Mark!".  He smiled and pointed at me.
