My Moment with Joe Banner

Saturday morning, as I was observing the Eagles practice, a cart pulls up and a ball boy hands the guy standing next to me an Eagles baseball hat.  Without seeing his face I sarcastically, but playfully remarked, "Wow, a free hat?  You must have some serious pull around here."  The man with the hat either didn't hear me, or just completely ignored me, although a cameraman nearby starting laughing, probably a little harder than he should have since it wasn't really that great of a joke.

My attention turned back to the field.  A few minutes later, the man with the hat walked out onto the field (a no-no for the media types), so I became interested in who it was.  He turns around, and it's freaking Joe Banner!  I suddenly realize that my "free hat" comment was unwittingly witty (if that makes sense), and I was literally laughing out loud on the sidelines thinking about my accidental zinger.

Naturally, I snuck a few pictures.  At one point, Mr. Banner's collar became flipped up (he later fixed it), but I thought it might be fun to vote on which Joe Banner you prefer:
