my personal experience with Lindsay yesterday! *with pictures*

Okay, I got to see Lindsay at Amelia Island last year, saw her win in Stanford and got a picture with her, but this one takes the cake!

After her HUGE win over Venus, I waited in line to get her to sign the awesome shirt I made. Lindsay normally signs for everyone but when she came out, the director guy handed her this Rotweiller puppy that she is thinking of adopting (good photo op!) so she walked down the aisle holding him, but she said she'd come back out to sign. The faithful, me included, went outside of the player's lounge to wait for her, and sure enough she came back out. I had made a shirt with a bunch of Lindsay's pictures on it from throughout the years and a lady that was waiting with me said to Lindsay, "you have to see what this young man did for you." So Lindsay comes over to me, she looks at my shirt, says "oh my god, that's so funny!" Then she strestches it kinda so she could see all the pictures, then I turned around so she could see the rest; she kept saying "oh my god, thank you so much!" I was like "no way, you're so welcome!" She asked where I wanted her to sign it, and I was just so happy she was talking to me I said "anywhere you want! but how about here (pointing to a big photo in the middle of her holding the Amelia Island trophy from last year)!" I told her it was from when she won here last year so maybe it would be good luck, and she said "yeah I know!" So she went on to sign for other people and before she left, she looked specifially for me(!) and said "again, thank you so much!" I ALMOST MELTED I was so happy!

Lindsay is BY FAR the most popular player at Amelia Island (hence the parade!) lol And let me tell you, there was Lindsay-Davenport-bobblehead-MANIA when it was time to give them out. Everyone lined up and started chantng "bobble heads, bobble heads....!" Unfortunately I could only get one because they marked our tickets. I wanted to get more to share with you guys but I couldnt, I'm sorry!

I'm going to post my pictures later on. I wasn't able to get too many of Lindsay herself because I didn't get to see her on the practice court this time (maybe I will on Sunday, if she's in the final ) and I was paying attention to the match instead of taking pictures. But I did get to see Lindsay's mom and Adam Peteson walking around. Oh yeah, I took a picture of the puppy that Lindsay might adopt!! He's ADORABLE, his name is McGilly or something like that. They have a booth from the Humane Society there doing adoptions and I hear that Lindsay has fallen in love with him throughout the week.

I'm so excited for Sunday (if Lindsay's there!). I didn't have my sign with me yesterday but if she's there on Sunday, I'll be there with my shirt and sign for sure! GO LINDSAY!

WOW, sounds like you have a great Lindsay experience!!! Hopefully when TOp's turn up to Wimby in force, Lindsay will like that.

Go Lindsay!

I ironed it all on by myself! And considering I had never used an iron before in my life(!) it was relatively simple LOL

yeah you just use your inkjet printer to print it on this special paper, which I found at a crafts store. You have to remember to flip the images on the computer before you print. Then iron it right on!
